HOME--TRULY HOME!

Katya slept in her own bed last night . . .

We are crazy busy as she needs supervised every single second. I will try to post some photos of her homecoming later  . . .

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS PRAYED, SUPPORTED, AND HELPED IN SO MANY WAYS!!!! WE THANK YOU AND BLESS YOU . . .  YOU HAVE HELPED SAVE KATYA'S LIFE!

And a special thank you to our friends who came last night to the airport to welcome us home. You do not know how very much we appreciated each and every one of you taking time in your busy lives to come show love for Katya!!

Next week we start taking her to Drs, hoping to try to get a clue of what types of needs she has and what can be done to meet those needs. There are many, many hours of medical appointments and therapy ahead of us, so thank you for continuing to pray for Katya and our family as we all wade though the adjustments that having the equivalent of a baby who can walk and run in the family brings! I have high hopes that as she is taught and related to, Katya will develop new and older behaviors, but in the meantime, she needs constant supervision to keep her safe.

God bless!
