Good days, not so good nights..........

We have been having good days since we got home, but bed time and nights are not going as well. Bethany is not wanting to go to bed at night. She wakes up several times during the night crying. It's hard to get her back to sleep. I expected this. We did not have any tears in China so I knew they would be coming. I think I am caught up on my sleep so that makes easier to deal with. I know it will get better as time goes on. Tomorrow we have our first dr. appointment. I hope it goes well. She really is doing great for a kid that has had her entire world turned upside down. I feel so blessed to be her mom & mom to Grant, Evan & Macie.

Bethany has met a bunch of her cousins. She readily smiles and plays with them. She likes to play outside with the kids. She is no longer afraid of the dog. That first day home she screamed when she saw Lady Jane. Well, that first night Bethany slept(what little she did) with me. When she woke up, Lady Jane was in bed with us. She thought that was pretty funny. Now she follows her around and tries to hand feed her and makes sure that I always have her water dish full.

Macie heads back to school tomorrow. She did an awesome job as our interpreter in China and is continuing to do so at home. We are really glad to be home and get back into a daily routine.

We went through night terrors and crying for about a year and a half. It is normal and it will come to an end. I know what you are going through.
