The time has come.

I am officially going to end this blog and start our new journey on our family blog. It is a private blog and if you are not already a viewer I can send you an invite. Just leave a comment letting me know you need invited with your email address. I will check here often so I can get everyone added who has followed our family's journey to Kinsey. It feels so weird ending this. It was like my online diary in a way. I am planning to turn it into a book so we can show it to her when she is older.

Kinsey has been home for almost 2 months now and is doing better everyday. She has officially went with her Nana on a trip to her house for a few hours. No tears! She wanted to go back. And she went with the neighbor for awhile today to play with no problems. Her English is improving. She spoke with our friend in Guatemala the other day and she could not make out anything Kinsey said unless it was in English. Kinsey's spanish is less frequent. It makes me sad but we just don't speak it fluently. She still says some small phrases, but mostly English words.

Hope you all decide to continue to follow this crazy family as we adjust to life as a family of 5!!!
