Post placement

Our post placement visit was tonight.  It went well. Again, I highly recommend Children of the World.  They are great in so many ways.  I love having a social worker who is not only a mom, but has adopted.  She didn't expect our house to be spotless and running like clockwork 5 weeks home.  She just wanted Darcy to be cared for, bonding, learning family skills, etc. In other words,the stuff that matters.

Now our last step for both adoptions will be readopting in America.  I called an attorney about that today.  Hopefully that will be done before the end of the year. 

Eva had a behavioral therapy appointment today.  It went well.  Still mostly getting to know each other and the things we need to work on with Eva. Eva filled one floor of the dollhouse just like last time, but the other floor she actually decorated.  And she played with some of the dolls this time. Major improvement in such a short period of time! 

We also bought Eva a potty training alarm.  She is really excited about it.  She wants to stop peeing in her pants.  And she doesn't want the pressure of telling us if she has an accident.  So, this removes that pressure while helping her potty learn.  We will see how it goes.  We are not worrying about night accidents and don't think we will for a long time to come.

Can't wait for the girls' first Thanksgiving on Thursday.  I have so very much to be thankful for this year!
