today brooke came over for a little while. she smiled the whole time she was w/us...my parents are here so they got to enjoy her...and they took tons of pictures (which i will have tomorrow). taking her back to the home she stays....she kicked the gravel and yelled out some words i could not make out. it appeared she did not want to return. tonight i hurt for her...and wish she could have stayed longer/spent the night. soon and very soon. but finally we got to touch her and hold her and she reached out and grabbed my hand and held it...not long, but oh how precious it was. grateful!
