Attaching is still a big focus specifically LT attaching to me. Never ever underestimate the awareness & commitment this ongoing process takes. I would not trade it for the world but it's hard & exhausting & emotional. Those of you who know...know. Those of you who are waiting, learn about it.
LT is an amazing sleeper and really likes her room. Last night around midnight I started to miss her so much I went her her room and brought her into my bed for cuddle sleep. It was heaven. I probably just laid there for several hours holding her. Then I decided she should go back to her bed as I don't want to interfere with her sleep routine. She didn't wake up. Since it worked so well, I may be doing that more often. It will be my little secret ;)
This is my story of the journey that led me to Ethiopia to meet my daughter and how she teaches me to Liv everyday.
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." --Antoine De Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince.
The colored stripes on the Ethiopian flag are significant - the red stripe stands for power, faith and blood; the yellow symbolizes peace, natural wealth and love; and the green represents the land and hope. The colors were also interpreted to have a connection to the Holy Trinity, and the three main provinces of Ethiopia. The star represents unity of the people and the races that make up Ethiopia. The five rays on the outside of the star represent prosperity and the blue disk represents peace. The three equal horizontal bands of green (top), yellow, and red with a yellow pentagram and single yellow rays emanating from the angles between the points on a light blue disk centered on the three bands; Ethiopia is the oldest independent country in Africa, and the three main colors of her flag were so often adopted by other African countries upon independence that they became known as the pan-African colors.
