Yana is changing before our eyes. Did the workers at her orphanage ever get to see the real Yana? 7 years waiting to let her light shine... my heart just breaks for the little baby that was never cuddled, then that little toddler who was never comforted, and then that little girl that never happened and no one cared.
Somewhere around 1-2 years my little Yana stopped developing and growing. She stayed a baby/toddler waiting for her chance to spread her wings and let her butterfly spring forth!
It is happening friends. In just over a week as part of a family, it IS happening!
As an example, our little caterpillar, who wouldn't reach for a toy further than 6 inches from her, is now doing climbing!
TAA-DAA!!!! I am so COOL!
And then, she proceeds to overload us with her cuteness and pride in her accomplishment! She was so darned happy!!
