Again... where do I begin? Yana had Toni and I rolling within minutes of meeting her. Let me tell you, this is one FUNNY little girl! Yana is tiny, but has some weight to her. And my goodness, she is FLEXIBLE! She turns her foot almost completely backwards, and she looks WAY up, like she is looking behind her a LOT!
She is very delayed, and not real interested in others, but I did see POSITIVE things. ONE, she thinks she is the funniest girl on the planet. Two, she has certain toys she prefers and throws the rest away. At one point I tried to take a toy from her and she kept catching my hand and holding it away or pushing it away... she was keeping the toy ... PERIOD. LOL
The other funny thing is she does NOT like the camera. Toni had it trying to take a picture of her, and she would turn competely away whenever she saw it and then SMILE like she was the cutest thing ever!
She moves constantly, a total wiggle worm. She walks holding hands pretty well, which is suprising because she is a wet noodle otherwise. What I saw in this little one was humor, a curiousity waiting to be nourished and encouraged, and a wild side. You can see it in her grin.
I could not be happier with these two little ones. And my heart is already breaking at the thought of having to leave them for a bit!
Now for what you really want... PICTURES!
This is Yanas bed. I was allowed to meet her "group" and see her room but could only take pics of her bed. I was able to hold the little boy who is in the crib next to hers... he is a doll. And I think he must have CP, but oh what a beautiful little boy!
