Our final trip to bring her home.


Aside from 4 visits to see her, we relied on pictures and updates from For This Child (FTC). They were very good about keeping us informed about Sharen Rose, but it was difficult to hear that she was doing new things, like lifting her head and reaching for objects, without being there to share it with her. Sharen Rose was just about 6 months old when she came home.
