A year and a half ago, shortly after bringing Katie home, a photo of another little girl with Down syndrome was posted on this blog.
Tiny Kolina had been waiting in Pleven for nine long years.
Do you remember her?
I rejoice to tell you that Kolina’s new mama picked her up from Pleven on Monday! Kolina is 10 1/2 years old now.
God had to move mountain after mountain to accomplish her adoption, and now she is coming home.

Having met Kolina in Pleven, and as I see her “before” photos and videos now, my heart can’t help but hurt for the unnecessary damage that was done to this beautiful girl by so many years of profound neglect.
But overshadowing the hurt is the thankfulness, the joy, the hope and anticipation of what is ahead for Kolina now!
