All Grown Up!

img_3513Irina celebrates her 19th birthday today, which makes her legally an adult in our state!  We adopted her in 1999 and she has come very far in that decade, especially considering that she had a very limited language base from which to work with when she came to the US.  Although she was deaf, Irina learned to read, write, and speak English, along with many other adademic pursuits.  It has been a pleasure to share this birthday with her!!
