This day. You can see the perfect combination of tenderness, exhaustion, concern, and relief in my face. And here is my daughter, days after we adopted her. She is stressed, scared, and barely able to move her limbs or lift her head. There was little I could do but be patient, keep her close and meet every need. I fell in love with her the moment her photo arrived and the bond was sealed when she was placed in my arms. I was fierce in my protection of this little bean, who was more fragile than we anticipated. But how she thrives. Today, my daughter is one of the most extraordinary people I know.
