Brooke told us that she was missing going to school so this week she started school.  We decided to do a three day trial to see if she really was ready.  She loved it.  The first day, she sang and told me about her day, the whole 40 minute ride home.  She sure can tell us a lot with the words she does have and non-verbal communication.  She is attending the Christian school I went to as a child and has a wonderful teacher.  The kids in her class have welcomed her too.


  1. That is so great! We are adopting an 11 year old girl this summer and our SW told us that she is used to going to school and being with girls her own age so we should continue that when she comes to the US.

    1. My advice would be to follow her lead and do what she is comfortable with. We thought there would be no school until next fall but she really was missing it.

  2. Oh how exciting for her! What an amazing special time for her.

  3. She is adjusting so well. I'm sure that makes you so happy. Blessings
