"You didn't give me these arms, but you gave them a family to hold.
You didn't give me my body but you've truly shaped my soul. Your love has given me wings and how my spirit soars. Knowing that I always will be yours. Forever and for always I am yours."

Without further adieu...

After a year of waiting, Jaeya gets to the part where she knows she is leaving her little friends and her Mama Lou whom she loves so dearly.  The birthday party was a bittersweet affair with tears and cheers.

To the rescue comes a video camera for Jaeya of her very own.  She can record her friends and views of this world she has lived the last 12 years.  She was extremely proud of her ability to control this little world in her hands.  She made very sure that Meisyn didn't get to play with it.  I have already learned this is a wise move on big sister's part. 

Makayla once again wins over the newest siblings.  Can't help but love Makayla and Lan!!

Meisyn took at least 100 pictures of scenes very similar to this.  LOL!  I tell ya, she is full of curiosity, spunk and outright naughty impishness.  She truly delights in herself and knows she is WONDERFUL.  She is every minute 6 years old.  Right on target.  She also loves Barbies and brought hers with her, complete with brown haired Barbie who had a terrible mishap with the scissors and barely has a brown hair left on her barbered head.  She will match all the other mauled and battered Barbies and the Ellison abode.

Will try uploading some video....
