It's Almost Time for Kindergarten!

I was pulling out some "official paperwork" this evening to take with us to kindergarten screening tomorrow.  I ran across and re-read Em's adoption paperwork and court transcripts from Kazakhstan.  It was VERY sobering.

Our daughter already knows she's adopted and I'll share these papers with her when she's MUCH older if she asks.

However, I'm going to HAVE to be prepared for that moment.  Sometimes the truth hurts.  But, due to the difference in culture and her rough start for the first several months of her life, the court paperwork is painful for THIS mother's heart.  I almost wish I hadn't looked through it this evening.

I'm giving MY daughter some extra tight hugs this evening when I put her to bed.
