Since the move, amongst other things we’ve had to “update”, we are required to get a home study update to bring Vivi home. Thankfully it’s not an entirely new home study (praise God!) but it has required a good bit of paperwork. Hopefully, getting the update completed and to USCIS won’t delay our travel at all. God willing.
We requested an update on Miss Vivi recently, since we hadn’t gotten any new news from her orphanage since February.
I asked about 10 questions, asking for her current height and weight and all the other things she might possibly be up to.
What are her favorite foods?
What are her favorite things to do?
Is she walking? Is she talking?
Can we please, prettypleasewithacherryontop, have a new picture of our girl?
Here’s the word we received yesterday:
“She can only walk with support such as by holding on an adult’s hands.
We put correcting shoes on her feet and it’s been improving. Now she only wears it at night. No need during the day.
She can only speak one or two words
She is not a picky eater and she does not have a favorite food. She likes playing with all kinds of toy.”
No new picture, I’m afraid.
But news, and good news at that: she’s out of her casts and into her brace for her clubfoot!! I am certain this is why her walking has been so delayed, they have been working to correct her feet for many months. It’s awesome to hear her feet have not only been corrected, but she can stand and is beginning to walk with help!
Awwww, and she’s talking, too… I can just imagine that tiny voice… I wonder what ‘words’ she can say?
Ooooooh, I just wanna squeeze her!
But no favorite foods? No favorite toys?
Could this possibly mean she’s an easy-to-please, happy-go-lucky child?
That might be the best news of all.
