Monica and I were in China...meeting Reese for the first time.
When I look at her today, it's hard to see the scared toddler we were handed. We didn't know then, that she had been taken from her foster parents that very morning, and promised ice cream when she cried for her "mama".
We made good on the ice cream promise as soon as we could. She began to tolerate us during the day, but at night she wanted to fight sleep. I am sure the sadness was overwhelming at night. What we didn't realize then-she is a night owl!!!
I love this sweet girl. I knew I would when I saw her picture for the first time.
