Today, Helen brought a "book" over for me to read. It was a photo album that I kept with me while we were waiting for our court date and travel. She looked at the picture of her at the top of this blog and said, "Helen's sad- I not sad anymore." Those words say it all!!

Summer is nearly over. It has been a great summer and the Britt family stayed pretty busy-I cannot believe that Will is going in to 5th grade and Wesley is a 3rd grader! They both have great teachers and classmates and I know that the 2010-11 school year will be a wonderful experience. Helen is going to miss her brothers so much but she will be starting preschool in a few weeks-she is only going 2 days a week for 3 hours but it will be a good time for me to go to the grocery store-alone!!!! (and BTW, why oh why do grocery stores have to put candy right where little Helen can grab them...I have bought many packs of candy because she tears into them before I can get them out of her hands!!! She is addicted to sugar-just like her mama!)
A few weeks ago, while we were at the beach, we celebrated Helen's referral day. It is hard to believe that we first saw her sweet face a year ago on August 11th-It honestly feels like she has been a part of our family for so much longer-I guess because she was in our hearts!! We are so lucky that we were chosen to be her parents.
