Chloe sleeps with a picture of Greg and I beside her pillow each night so that if she wakes up she can look at the picture and know that we are here and haven't left her. She has struggled in her big bed upstairs waking up feeling like she was back in the orphanage alone. The picture seemed to resolve those feelings, so I sent a picture of us attached to a lanyard along with her to preschool for her to wear and look at anytime she was scared we wouldn't come back and get her. I'm not sure what did the trick, but I'm certain the fervent prayers that were being offered on her behalf that day by so many played a huge roll.
So we consider ourselves very blessed to be able to share this milestone with you. Chloe seems to genuinely enjoy preschool and we rejoice that we can celebrate this step forward in her trust and security.
