The Blakes have been together with Emma for a week now - its been a really hard week since Emma was in foster care and seems to miss her foster mom. Joyce writes, "We've now been with Emma for almost a week and still trying to see what personality immerges . . .she's 17mo, but developmentally she is 10-12. While she has the walking mechanics down, she has no motivation to do so. She cries alot more than I remember Esther crying, and Dayton can not be too far out of sight or she cries - we just weather thru it and we play together alot, sing alot (which she sings back and is really cute.) Esther and I asker her if she was just a mello kid and she shook her head a definite YES. We laughed and laughed - she was trying to figure out what was so funny."
Please pray for them as they board the plane for the US next week - they will need all the prayers they can get traveling with two little munchkins!
Can't wait to meet this adorable girl - she arrives home only a few days before I arrive back from DC. I will post pictures so that you can see the reunion of Richardsons & Blakes!
