  10. Oh my - I am sitting her watching your video and I am just amazed at the transformation I have just seen in your little girl. I was at the TH when your daughter arrived. She arrived with a group of 5 kids and it was one of the most heart-wrenching moments of our trip. The kids were so scared and alone. Your little one threw-up in the car on the way to the TH and she was just a little zombie - so scared and non-responsive. We hugged her and held her and tried to soothe her. And now she has transformed into this beautiful little girl with a gorgeous smile and a forever family she is about to come home to. Please go back and read my blog from early December when we were in ET to pick up our sons. We are celebrating with you and looking forward to following your blog as your bring her home! with love, Karen Wistrom www.family-from-afar.blogspot.com
