My Name Is Devika!

Hi, my name is Devika!
I'm a
funny little girl!
I love to dance and bang my head,
I'm learning how to twirl!

I'm only 13 lbs,
But I'm as strong as 33!
I do perfect somersaults,

It's something everyone should see!

When I came home
I was scared
My parents feared the worst.

I screamed and cried and rocked,
My parents worried I would burst!

Now I've been home
For 4 short weeks
The time has really flown!

It's amazing how much I've changed
And how big and tall I've grown!


I'm happy now,
I laugh a lot!
I've blossomed so fully
In the love that I've sought!

I'm pudgy and bouncy,
I jump and I walk.
I play with my sister,
I'm learning to talk!

Life as a family
Is so special you see?
I love my family
And they all love me!

She is such a gorgeous little girl -- and you're mighty creative! What a sweet rememberance for Devika when she's older . . . it's like having her very own Dr. Seuss book. :o)

Beautiful! It's so neat to see the HUGE difference in these recent photos compared to the one at the children's home. She is blossoming in your home and it shows!
