We went down to a really cool part of Atlanta and shopped. Colleen and one of Gab's friends joined us. We ate and shopped. George stayed home with the kids. It was fun to get out and not worry about diapers, whiny ,snotty nosed kids(that I love dearly) or trying to keep your kids quiet and happy at a restaurant. Gab seemed to have a good time. Her purchases were fun. We will have a cake and ice cream tomorrow when George's dad can join us.
Gabrielle has had a tough year. Nobody can deny this. She is still dealing with alot. More than you can ever imagine. But she's coming along slowly. We only have her at home for a few more years. I hope these next years are a time of growth and change. I've had to learn to appreciate the tiny positive changes that she is making. I want her to take huge leaps, She's not there. She might never be there. But we love her and will continue loving her through this tough and painful journey called life.
