Noel came from Istanbul last December and she was the best Christmas present ever for our family. For Noel, everything was new, scary and exciting. A long plane ride and rides in more than one car, she finally reached her destination of wonder, love, safety, comfort, toys, cushions and a new sister to play with and love. To top it off, she had an introduction to snow that was the most wonderful thing ever to roll in. Of course, now that it’s summer and it has been hot, Noel is longing for the white stuff even more.
