How Long????

How long will it take my sweet girl to know I love her?

To feel...
secure when I leave her at home with the rest of the family?

To walk...
with courage into the house, from the car, before I do?

To understand...
being corrected for wrong doings doesn't necessarily mean
"time out".
And doesn't mean that she is "icky"

To know...
I love her through thick and thin?


It breaks my heart when I think of the hurt that
my daughter has felt for five years.
How many people disappointed her?

How many people have left her?

When will she feel secure that we are truly her forever family!

and

no matter what she does she is ours and we are hers!


Oh, the scars that orphans carry for the rest of their life.
But, oh, the joy when they begin to heal!

Hey Friend -- I may just steal your post, for we too see glimpses of that with Alaina. Mostly, she is confident and strong; however, sometimes we see the uncertainty and fear...
