As you can see from the picture, Melody has overcome her intense fear of the cats and pet Jobe. Now she is all over the cats. She loves to pet them and sometimes has to be told to give the cat a break.
Joey, on the other hand, is not a big fan of the cat. In fact, shortly after the above picture was taken, Joey threw a massive fit because his foot touched Jobe. He's not comfortable with the cats, to say the least.
As Leala said, this month has gone by quickly and well. The kids are adjusting extremely well. Our adoption social worker came by and said that she was very surprised. In our prior conversatoins with her, she thought our expectations were not quite with what we would experience. The other day, she said she was amazed to see how well the kids were doing and they were much better adjusted than she would ever have expected. All of them are really good kids. We are very blessed.
