All of these girls were adopted on the same day in the same province, but they are not necessarily from the same orphanage. Oh, how I wish I had “before and after” pictures of these sweeties. The change has been remarkable. They are all so healthy, so lively, so happy and SO loved! Sadly, this wasn't the case one year ago.
The family that hosted the reunion did an OUTSTANDING job. We met at their house Friday night for pizza and fun! LOTS OF FUN!!!
Saturday was filled with more food and fun at a children’s zoo and a beautiful park.
Here's DB hanging out at the zoo with her friends.
A group picture of the girls and their siblings-- unfortunately, CS, the youngest, isn’t in the picture.
LL, JK, Doodlebug and DD on the way to the swimming pool
After a picnic lunch and fun at the park, the girls enjoyed a swim in the neighborhood pool. Then, it was back to the hotel for a much needed nap.
Once the girls had rested, we went back to the host family’s house to enjoy a WONDERFUL cook-out.
Finally, a picture of all 5 girls and DD. Sorry that LL was looking the other way. Getting five 2 & 3 year olds to all look the same way and smile at the same time is no small feat! LOL
