Visits with Nina

Each time we have gotten to see Nina has been unique and different in many ways. We are getting to know each other and we work through shyness, a language barrier, and limited activities to do. Yet, we are getting to know each other, and we are really looking forward to seeing her tomorrow.

We think Nina will be able to pick up English pretty well. She imitates everything we do, and the more comfortable she is with us, the more she speaks in front of us, thus, imitating our words too. It is so cute!

I have tried to teach her sign language, but really, I think she will learn the words along with the sign, so who knows how much she will sign! I guess she will have to learn signs because of her sister Nichole :)

Is she as excited to see us as when we see her? Probably not yet, but she sure gives us big smiles!

Her orphanage is wonderful. The doctor there cares so much about the children, and there is one worker that really loves Nina and we can tell Nina loves her too! We really really like her as well, and hope to get pictures of Nina with these two wonderful women.

We cannot wait until we can bring Nina home.
