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!')
