A Perfect Fit






Jolea is such a perfect fit in our family. We are so thankful that God gave her to us. She is so full of energy. She is far from the shy girl that we were told she was. Maybe Mai was shy, but Jolea isn't! Her english is coming along very slowly. She has learned to say thank you, and says it often. She says no, yes, and Ma, but that is about it. She does seem to understand a lot more of what we tell her. She eats just about anything you put in front of her, and mealtime is sacrad to her. She sits at the table until she is finished and then she takes her plate to the trash. She finally loves playing in the pool, and is such a little fish. She jumps in and goes underwater and comes up laughing. She should be swimming on her own by next summer. She doesn't like the dogs yet, but she is getting better. She will actually pet the yorkie as long as she doesn't move. I have to say that she is the most appreciative little girl I have ever seen. I only wish my other two appreciated things like she does. Everyday when she gets dressed she has to look at herself in the mirror, and loves what she sees. Even getting a simple peppermint lights up her eyes. She's amazing! She and Luke are getting along a little better. They still fight over toys but what brother and sister don't. I think they'll be a little better when Brea goes back to school. Brea still absolutely adores her and carries her everywhere, and Jolea loves every minute of it.
