Katy's 3rd Gotcha Day
It is so hard to believe that three year's ago Tuesday, we made a long trek to CT to bring home Katy. Poor Bailey was terrified until he realized it wasn't a trade in, but an add on. He finally relaxed and started to make friends when they were both strapped into our now deceased blue Saturn.
She was so scared and so afraid those first few weeks. It took her a very long time to believe that she had arrived in a forever home, not another foster home. When that line was crossed she started to truly open up and it was wonderful to see her truly discover her world.
This year one big advancement has been making connections beyond DH and I. This summer we had to travel out of state to a wedding and Katy got one of her favorite people to stay with her and Bailey while we were gone. She was so disappointed when her dog sitter had to head home. That wouldn't have happened a year ago.
We are so proud of you Katy. You continue to amaze us.
