This summer has brought amazing changes in Emma. Not only does she talk but she forms her own thoughts and voices her opinions. Not only does she love other children but she is pursuing socialising opportunities with a passion. Not only is she polite but she is also kind and compassionate and fun to be with. Not only does she love being read to but she loves “reading” to herself and to anyone she cares about(Giagia had the privilege to be read to the entire Oxford Reading Tree collection when we visited at the weekend).
I an proud to be her mummy. Proud to hear people who haven’t seen her all summer commenting on how independent she has become. How considerate she is and how smart. I know that this summer’s challenges were worthwhile when I see what a well-behaved and sensible little girl she has become. It was worth putting my dreams of personal fulfilment on hold for Emma’s sake. I love this little woman and I never thought that three years ago when she entered our lives with an ever so serious little face that our lives would change for so much better!
