Leaving was hard. This place was my home for 3 months. I got to know and love these kids so much. I'm so thankful for my time at the home, but it's hard to say good-bye to
Checha's contagious laugh,
Alejandra's sweet hugs,
Yeni's crazy personality,
playing ball with Cesar,
Humberto's feeding times,
Merlyn's beautiful face,
Edy's sweet cooing and giggles on his good days,
and Alison's smile.
On the night before I left, I brought baby Alison upstairs with me. She "helped" me pack, but I also got to spend a little more time with her before I left. I look at this picture, and I long to hold her again. These kids changed my life for the better.
I've been home 6 days now. It was very overwhelming at first, as my family moved from California to Texas while I was gone, so I came home to new everything! It's been hard adjusting, but it's so good to be with my family again. I got my younger siblings off the bus my first day back, and they were so happy to see me. Oliver freaked out, and did not leave my side the rest of the day. He still pretty much is always with me, and I'm okay with that, except for when I'm in the bathroom and I can hear him pounding on the door. :)
I plan now to continue my blog but about my life her in Texas with my crazy family.
