The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

First Poop....and THEN some....

Keira is such a wonderful, sweet, beautiful little girl. It's so hard to see her when she is grieving. She had a very loving foster family and will probably be grieving for a while. Yesterday poor Dan was getting such a complex because when she woke up, she kept looking over at him and scream/crying. He didn't know what to do. I would pick her up and even though I would hold her and try to soothe her, she was completely inconsolable. Everytime she would look in Dan's direction, she would start all over again. Poor Dan! Poor Keira and although I'm not one that likes to feel sorry for myself....Poor me too! Finally Dan moved and she was still looking over to where he was previously sitting and there it was. Her foster mother gave Keira a little duckie backpack with crackers that she loved to eat and when she saw it, of course she thought of her foster mother. We tried to distract her some so that Dan could move that and anything else that might remind her. We want to keep it and give it to her at a time when she might understand more, but right now is much too hard for her. She slept through the night and woke this morning a new baby! She was so happy and had been such a sweet little angel- maybe because she FINALLY let out a great big HUGE poop! Max would have been proud. We went on a tour of a park area with an old school and temples and even though she did get a little fussy when the sun would get in her eyes....who wouldn't? We headed over for the biggest adventure of all after that.....the local Walmart Superstore! CRAZY! They are even crazier there than at our local Walmart. Who would have thought that was possible?!?!?! After Aggie our guide helped us with trying to figure out what things were (saline solution etc)...we are back in the hotel room. One of the BEST things that we found was a play telephone. She is having the best time with it as well as a little book. We're also getting a little more used to each's all such a learning experience, on BOTH parts!
