It has been just over a month since we were in China meeting Lilah-Kate for the first time.  Now, it seems like she has always been with us and we wonder what we ever did without her.  She has really taken to the whole family and loves to get us involved in her play!  She continues to amass more shoes and still loves to dress up.  Lilah-Kate is beginning to understand English words and follows simple commands.  She laughs easily and frequently (we are all very funny people)!  Will wrote a poem that says it all...

Little Sister

I have a new little sister.
We traveled to China to get her.
She's cute and she's funny.
She loves her stuffed bunny!
I have a new little sister.

She speaks Chinese when she has something to say,
We speak English, it's tricky this way!
The most important language is love.
We speak with smiles and hugs.
I have a new little sister.

She's been through a lot, she's doing great!
She's a brave little girl, that Lilah-Kate.
We're happy she's home, the adoption took awhile.
Now that we're all together, we can't help but smile!
I have a new little sister.

-Will McCullar
