A good ending to a crazy week

On of my good blogger friends put on a "Blog-licious Blog Giveaway" and guess who won. That's right folks, I'm the WINNER. I won a beautiful Mayan doll dress for Faith, now all I have to do is get the doll. Thanks Stacy. I am laughing my butt off watching the videos. I also see that you got the latest addition of Vogue. Check out Stacy and Isabella

Last night we had a break through. Well maybe not a break through, but something I've noticed lately. Going back to Faiths Gotcha Day, when Faiths foster mother handed her over to me, she came to me no problem. Well actually, she went to any one no problem. She had no attachments. Do to some of the neglect she had experienced she spent much time alone and self soothing. It was a sad time for her. Well last night we decided to take the whole family to church. It was our first time all six of us went to church together. The babies went to the daycare and Paris and Roc came to the service with Jayme and I. I got called out twice because Faith wouldn't stop crying. The second she was handed to me she stop crying and melted into me. I could cry just thinking about it. We've bonded. She finally has a sense of herself and her surroundings.She knows the difference between her family and strangers. The pediatrician said to me the other day that she has "stranger anxiety" and it's a good thing. She has come so far in the last four months. We are all so truly blessed. As for church, we have to work on that.
