Happy Birthday, Naphtalie

Little Naphtalie celebrated her birthday yesterday with a great party! Her host mom, Kim sent along these photos and an update on how she is doing. We are happy to hear that her head size is not increasing and the doctor thinks the initial surgery was successful. She doesn't seem to be in pain as she was before though teething is causing some discomfort. Apparently she is getting six teeth at once...ouch! She is now listening and move to music and is interested in toys. Kim told us that before surgery she would actually seem to be overstimulated by toys so this is a definite improvement. We are all hopeful that Naphatalie will continue to do well and will be able to travel home to her family sometime in early summer. A big thanks to Kim and her family for taking such great care of this beautiful girl!
