Yesterday, I took Lydia for her first doctors appointment in Cincinnati, Ohio. Needless to say, I thought it was just going to be an evaluation. Well, I was so wrong. 6 shots later...and lab work done...my sweet girl was ready to go home!
It was probably the hardest thing to watch. To see my daughter totally freak out like that was so heartbreaking!
Tomorrow, I have to drive to Northern Kentucky for her doctor to check her TB test..then on Monday...I am back in Cincinnati to deliver "samples" that we have had to collect over the weekend.
Poor girl..considering the circumstances..she did very well.
One more thing.....her doctor is concerned about her attachment to us. Reason being..because she goes to just about anyone (but still comes back to us-which she states is a good start with healthy attachment). She stated that for the next 5 months that no one else should be able to hold her or provide for any of Lydia's needs. We are uncertain about this. I have read and researched this..most adoption circles will state this. However, we will be speaking to other families that have adopted from China who have a Christian worldview. We certainly want what is best for Lydia..so whatever we need to do..we will do.
Pray for us that we will have wisdom regarding this situation..also that if we do need to do this..that our friends and family will respect our decision.
