Today, Elizabeth turned 9 years old! Ever since we got to foster Elizabeth 6 months ago, she has asked when her birthday was. In the beginning, for weeks she'd say "My birthday is tomorrow!" I'd have to say, "NO, it's not tomorrow, but a long time off yet." With no concept of time, it took awhile for her to realize it was not anytime soon! Not that she ever forgot, but she finally got to the point where she didn't ask every day! Since she has been studying Kindergarten, she has now gained a much better concept of time. When her birthday was a month away, she began to get excited and started to count down the days! She'd say, "Only 25 more days and it'll be my birthday!" and so on, and so on. Well...the day finally came and we had a birthday celebration inviting some of our friends to join in the celebration! Congratulations Elizabeth, now you only have 364 days until your next birthday!!
