Thanks for praying for her. Her transition has been going really well. It has actually helped me in knowing that she likes it here. She loves our new apartment, her new toys that she received from a little girl who just left here, and is getting to love the nursery that she is in 4 days a week. God really knew what he was doing when he gave her to us. She brings so much joy to us every day. I'm not sure we would survive this without her!
Who Are We
We should be jealous. . . for the honour of His name – troubled when it remains unknown, hurt when it is ignored, indignant when it is blasphemed. And all the time anxious and determined that it shall be given the honour and glory which are due to it.” John Stott

We have been told that sometimes, when young kids enter a new culture where a new language is spoken, that they will stop talking altogether for awhile. It seems like they just need to figure out what is going on, and then they will get back to normal. So we came to France prepared...but didn't have to worry :) The only time there is silence around here is when Addie is sleeping. Just tonight, she had to go to the bathroom and was chatting a little too much to concentrate on what she was doing, so I left her alone. As soon as I walked out the door, I hear her yell, "Mommy, I need some privacy!" over and over again, followed by "Are you giving me some?" Hmmm, I'm not sure she quite gets the concept of privacy yet :)
