We got the girls up earlier than usual to allow and hour to eat breakfast. They really do eat that slowly! In the meantime I get to talk to other adoptive moms sitting around me 😊.

Now we wait two days to receive her visa to exit China, and upon arrival on US soul, she’s officially an American citizen!

When we got back to the hotel we actually found a decent English speaking movie on: a Herbie movie! Anna Faith loved it. Lottie doesn’t watch tv at all, even Chinese cartoons. I wonder if she has to strain her eyes to see it so doesn’t try.
At bedtime Lottie kept motioning she wanted to sit on the toilet. We tried this last week and she was too weak to hold herself on and we decided to wait until she could sit on an adapted seat. We let her try again and she held on AND went! Once again our girl wowed us today.
Whenever she achieves something she gains more confidence and dignity. I can’t imagine how it must feel to be 5 years old and see kids a third your age doing things you want to do, but you are too weak or uncoordinated to do it. I saw her at the playground looking at other children play, and wondered what was going through her young mind. Yet she still smiled and she laughed when she couldn’t do something. She never gave up and never cried in frustration. That attitude is going to take this girl places!
