A fun And Busy Weekend
Friday evening we spent time with my Brother and sister in law. We went swimming, enjoyed a meal outside and made Smores by there fire pit. It was the perfect summer evening. we had a major breakthrough with Hannah and her fear of dogs. Since we have had Hannah she has been terrified of dogs and screams when she sees one. At first the dog would be a mile away and she would have a fit. She has gotten better at being able to look at them from afar and be okay. Well she finally was okay being in the same room with a dog which is a huge accomplishment. It has been hard for us because we want to spend time with our family but do not want to make our daughter feel scared at the same time so this was so huge for her. Saturday we met up with a family that adopted a little girl from china 9 months ago named Grace. Grace and Hannah are 7 days apart. They share the same doctor and similar heart condition and our doctor thought we should meet(he is so great). We had a great time at the park together. I love how adoption has connected our family with so many great people. we look forward to spending more time with this great family. If anyone is interested in hearing more about international adoption or our story. we will be holding an America World adoption seminar September 10th from 10-12 at 1507 Manhattan Beach Blvd. in Manhattan Beach, 90266. you can register at AWAA.org at there events page.
