Aleshia Day #5 - Last Glimpse of New Pictures of Her Until Gotcha Day

Today Brent had one last visit with Aleshia.  Things went well and he was able to get an address so that we can send stuff while she waits.  I will record another book soon and send so that the "teacher" can work with that with her as well.  I may send some flashcards with pictures that the teacher can go over the American words for with her.  Aleshia may not "speak", but she does understand.  :)

Aleshia was her normal lovable self.  :)  I was able to Skype with them this morning and she definitely recognizes my voice and I believe she associates it with the book she loves so much.  :)

 Julianne does this same cute thing of putting her chin on ours, we call it "chin love"!

Daddy had some good play time with Aleshia today.

The last thing that Daddy got to do before he had to leave was feed her.

Please remember that you can VOTE for our blog and help us spread the word to more people.
Also remember that we have a GIVEAWAY going on right now with 3 ways to win a gift.
Also remember that the Hidden Treasures Auction is coming up, so if you have anything to donate to it the info is on the link.
Over the weekend, we will once again be featuring more waiting children.  Please try and share on your Facebook walls so that more people see their faces,  Even if a friend of yours isn't the Mommy of one of the children, it could be a friend of your friend who is and they see it because you share.  :)
This post from yesterday has a wonderful song that I just became aware of as well as lots of ways you can help and links to get you there.  :)

Nicholas's visits will start next week!
