I was reminded by another mom who travelled with us that today marks one month since we adopted Juliana. In some ways it seems like yesterday, in other ways it seems as though she has always been part of our family. I took pictures of the other girls on their monthly birthdays for the first year, so it seems fitting to do the same for Juliana.
I am amazed how well she fits our family. I am also so thankful for how well she has adjusted. Tonight as we were going through our evening routine, she put her head on my shoulder. She has also taken to patting my head and wants to feel my hand on her head or face when she is tired. It is so wonderful to have her bonding so well. She becomes a little more cuddly and affectionate each day and I am really enjoying it. She has been clingy since our first days, but it took being at home for her to really feel at ease with us. She has also really taken to her sisters. Having many wonderful sisters myself, I am thankful they are already so close.
