Cora Upate

Thank you all for praying for Cora. We had an MRI on October 30th. We are praising God that there were no masses on her brain or optic nerve. The only thing they saw was her Optic nerve is small in her left eye. Right now her vision is 20/20 so we aren't going to worry about it right now. It is just something we will keep an eye on. So Thankful!!!!
It was a scary day for her, even though her English is doing so well, it was a hard thing to explain. She was supposed to drink some pink princess cocktail juice to calm her before putting her to sleep, but she put it in her mouth looked at all of us and spit it all right back out. Tried to bribe her with a Target run after procedure too. LOL We ended up having to hold her down until she fell asleep which took a matter of a minute because she was screaming. She was under three hours and woke up one happy little girl who said "Mommy can we go to Target"
Cora is doing great. Her English has blown us away how good she can speak and understand, She knows her colors, almost all her letters and sounds, and is doing addition and place value in her math book. She also has beautiful handwriting and loves doing school with mommy. She talks with me a lot about China and the differences in her schooling. The other day we were coloring and she said China doesn't have cream, light blue and mint colors. LOL She is a Smart little Cookie!!! We are so blessed to call her daughter and so thankful that God called us to her. We can't imagine our lives without our precious girl. God truly does knit a family together, it is beautiful, hard and sanctifying but the most PRECIOUS gift. Adoption is a blessing, and can save you from your self. Thank you Lord for calling us to our sweet girls, and blessing us with our boys.
