The bravest little girl

Today I met the bravest little girl.  She was awaken at 3:45 am, got dressed and placed into a large car, while it was still dark outside.  She then took a 4 1/2 hour ride in this car to a city larger than she had ever seen before, road in a street car, spent time at a passport office where people had to take her picture and she had to be moved from seat to seat.  She then ate her first Happy Meal, sat 4 hours in a train station waiting for a train to arrive.  She had to walk down a huge platform to a train...definitely the biggest vehicle she had ever seen.  She then road the train for 7 1/2, got out on a dark train platform, road an escalator for the first time, came out in a really big city with tons of lights and people.  She got in to another taxi and drove around the city for a little while until she went into a large several story building and then into an apartment.  All of this she did with excitement, enthusiasm and a smile on her face!  Wow, she is brave.  There were several times she would hold me close and kiss me many times.  I feel our time at the orphanage was priceless and really helped her feel safe and secure with me.
