Each special child with unique personality

The end of the first week has arrived…already. We are getting to know the children and they seem to be getting to know us. The children, each with their unique personalities, are so special and have a special place in my heart.

Emma is still in isolation, so I spent some time holding her. She still seems to have a fever, but she still talks and gives that special Emma smile.

Saturday we said our goodbyes to Mary Ann and Sunday we said goodbye to Barbara and Tracey. We are sad to see them leave, as are the children I am sure, but happy to have made three new friends. Sunday evening we reunited with Cher who is joining us for the second week. On Saturday and Sunday my mother and I went to the hospital for the mornings to hang out with “our” kids. We had a great time each morning, and we certainly appreciated the big job the two aides have taking care of all the children over the weekends. On Sunday we witnessed bath time and noticed another child in the isolation room with Emma…thinking it might be Dan, who we met two years ago.

The first week has flown by, and I eagerly await the joys and surprises of this upcoming second week.
