Starts To Take Steps

Sophie Wei starts to take a couple of steps today! Sixteen days after cast removal. I could pinch myself. She is trying so hard but her muscles are not fully recovered yet. What a blessing.

Sophie Wei is still having a difficult time sleeping and wakes up crying in the middle of the night, in the morning and at nap time. We try to hold her and comfort her as much a possible to let her know we love her. We also have to make sure she does not hurt her self when she is working through what she is going through. She still says she is in pain.

I feel for her because I know how that being adopted and leaving her only home she knows is enough for anyone to go through. Then on top of that she has this surgery which will help her in the long run but it is hard to see her going through this transition.......All of the reading I have done about adoption, transitions and surgery has helped me understand and prepare but going through it is been hard.

Sophie Wei you are such a sweet little girl who is a fighter. We admire you and you inspire us.
