Natalie arrived at New Day on July 8th, 2014. She was almost 6 months old and had a serious heart condition.
Her bio says that when she arrived she was very weak but very cute. Her nannies were ready to pour love into her and as they did they were rewarded wth her beautiful smiles.
Natalie had the heart surgery she needed in October of 2014 and quickly focused on recovering. It was such a joy to watch her regain strength, grow, and experience new things.
Shortly after her first birthday Natalie moved in with her foster family.
We loved seeing her every time they would stop by for a visit, and Natalie was quick to greet people with a wave and her beautiful smile. Natalie quickly grew from a little baby into a very busy little girl!
Last spring Natalie started preschool and we were able to see even more of her sweet personality.
Natalie recently returned to her orphanage in anticipation of her upcoming adoption. While we miss seeing her everyday we are excited for the transformation that will be happening in her life soon, the transformation from orphan to beloved daughter.
