Xena's story

It really has been fun to think back on all of the kids we have had in our home, brings back some great memories! I was talking to Melissa this morning about some of our placements and just realized how blessed we have been to have been able to take care of these children. They are so special! They have been through so much in such a short amount of time, and they have come into our lives and have taught us so much!
A quick story about a cute little girl we had named Xena. We had this beautiful little girl come into our home when she was only about 3 years old and her mom had shaved her head, and treated her like a little boy. Well we had a house full of girls and a house full of dress up and Xena loved to dress up, she adored all the dresses and we got her pretty hats to wear and she loved it! We would let her put on make up (only as dress up) and tell her how beautiful she was and she just ate it up, if we had been given the chance to adopt this cutie we would have jumped on it! She was just so much fun to have in our home, but she ended up going back to mom. When I told Xena that she got to go home, she wrapped her arms so tightly around my neck and said "please just let me stay with you mom." Oh I was heart broken, but at the same time I was so glad that her stay with us was a good experience for her. We just found out a few years ago that Xena has been adopted and is doing great! We are thrilled for her!!
