It has been a whole year

This Mothers day (and as any other from now on) was very special for our family. Year ago on Mothers day we were siting in the hotel room in Nachang, China and waited for the bell. And it happened as they told us. In the right time there she was. Scarred, but beautiful little girl.

And she loved Marco right away and the love for us followed.
Now year later she has grown into a beautiful 2 year old. After first few months she came out of her shell. At first she was the "dreamy perfect baby". And I mean just mind blowing how happy and obedient she was. I am unsure if this is due to her upbringing at the foster mother home or it was part of attachment process, but it was nice to have this honeymoon with her. Rewind forward one year and here she is showing us her real spunky personality. She is still very happy child, but did learn (as most of 2 years old do) how to play us with her emotions. Everyday she surprise me how smart she really is. Every time I look at her I realize how extremely lucky we are to have her in our family.
She now can count to ten in English and Czech. She sings alphabet song and other Czech or English songs. She can spell her name - lucky for her it is very short. She can ride her push bicycle. Unfortunately I do not think she will be runner, at least not with the technique she uses now. When she runs it seems she uses her hands as propeller to do so, but they seem to fly in all kinds of directions. And surprisingly we did not have any big injuries. She has not have any bad sicknesses, well except of the Mouth, foot disease and that was worst than any earache we had with Marco. Luckily this lasted only week and she did not pass it on anybody else.
And how pretty she is! Well now I might be little bias on this one. Anyway see for yourself.

We could not be more honored to be her family.
