It's been 5 years since she's been home,
and she is still slowly, ever so slowly unveiling her true self.
One word can not sum her up.
She is WAY to interesting for that!
So Sweet, so Gentle and so Tough at the same time ~
That's our Ping in a nutshell ~
She wouldn't 'take' her new name when we brought her home.
She will go 'toe to toe' with anyone she disagrees with.
And at the same time ~
She just might be the most sensitive and gentle soul you'd ever meet
She continues to heal and blossom beneath our eyes ~
Thanks to God for all He is doing in her life cuz this mom surely
doesn't know some days WHAT to do with Miss Ping!
She keeps me on my toes.
And I love it ;)
Did I mention fearless ~
She is no 'girlie girl' that's for sure
This girl's got 'Swagger' ,
L'awd help me!
Nice fake smile sweetie ~ she is not the biggest fan of posed photos
Which is too bad cuz she is crazy photogenic!
C.A.N.N.O.T take a bad shot of that face
(we all have our burden's to carry I guess ~ sheesh)
And day by day, year by year
She surprises all of us with her unveiling self
Just when I think I know her ~ she reveals something new.
Miss Ping (ahem Jade) , you add so much to our Family
We would be so boring with your sass and smile!
Enjoy your 9th Birthday 'Partay',
Can't wait to see what the next year unveils!
Love you all the way to the Moon and back!
(to which she follows with...'Oh yeah, well I can bet that!')
Our dear, dear sweetie, Ping.ReplyDelete
9 years old already!! WOW! We can't get over how fast time has flown. I remember the first time you came to Wpg. You were only 4, but you were independent and strong. You would allow us to cuddle for a bit, but enough was enough! You and Autumn couldn't agree on who was taller!
You are growing up so quickly into a beautiful, sensitive, strong, generous, smart, loving young lady.
We love you and we are so blessed to be in your family.
Glad you had do much fun at the park!
Happy Birthday, Ping! I hope you had a great one! I totally get the "unveiling" part. Haleigh's personality continues to show itself the longer she is home. Still not there on so many counts, but closer every day and I love what I am seeing! Aren't we blessed to be the mamas to these two precious Z girls?ReplyDelete
