It was such fun to see Hannah play so wholeheartedly! There's a toy hidden in the leaves, one she tosses, loses in the leaves, digs for, then tosses again, and again, and again....
And the object of her interest? Can you see it in the photo below?
Here it is.
When Hannah felt safe, we saw her youthful exuberance. These photos were taken when she was 2½, in November, 2008, about six months after she came to live with us. She'd gained about 6 or 8 pounds (up from about 50 pounds) and was looking good. She may look overweight but she wasn't. We learned that her hair grew fast and already needed another clip.
How I love that girl! Forever missing Hannah.
