Journey for Miriam- her profile

On Feb 16 I received a phone call from our adoption agency.  "We have a profile of a little girl we think you might like to review.  However, she is a little older than you requested.  Would you still like to see it?"  Would we???? Of course!!! So yes, she and Jonathan will be close in age but hopefully they'll be closer friends too.  I'm not going to lie, the information we received was lacking.  Apparently this is pretty common with Chinese adoptions.  There were 4 photos, which was great, but they were all of her when she was about 11 months old (making them over 6 months old).  Much of the medical information was also over six months old, meaning we didn't have much to go on for developmental data.  We did get an update once we accepted her profile that showed she is talking, walking, and climbing stairs, so she appears to be developing on schedule.  She does have a medical condition which she has already had surgery for, however we don't really know to what extent she has recovered or what treatment she might still need.  The medical records were only half translated, some was illegible, and it was all brief.  So it's a leap of faith.  And like we would with Grace and Jonathan, we will deal with whatever comes and get her whatever treatment she needs.
