I just got word today from Andrea, the Director of Reece's Rainbow, that Sofia's birth year was noted incorrectly on the website. Her birthday is February 21st but she wasn't born in 2008....but 2009!!!
She's turning ONE year old later this month. She's a BABY!!!
Of course my initial reaction upon reading Andrea's email was a bit of SHOCK but I quickly realized that we were just given another gift. The gift of an entire year.
One less year in an institution. One more year for early intervention services when she comes home to us. One less year of abandonment. One more year of love, attention, hugs and kisses from her family here at home.
Although she will celebrate her first birthday in an orphanage, this will be a VERY special birthday for her and for us! Even though she is half way across the globe from us, we will send her our love. She will have the greatest gift of all...one that so many of us take for granted...a family.
She will definitely be the BABY in the family now with three older brothers to watch after her.
We're so happy!
We also got a few more pictures of her today. These are like GOLD to us!
