My apologies for the delay. It's been difficult to find time to deal with blogs while taking care of and getting to know this child. She still won't speak-I'm pretty sure she can't, to be honest. She also doesn't seem to have any particular preference to a name, so I've decided to call her Nina, since she's vaguely Hispanic looking and the word for 'girl' in Spanish is niña.
She seems to like it well enough, and we've been getting on pretty well. She's the sweetest thing, and very helpful. I'm pretty sure she's a runner kid, she knows what I'm talking about when I mention the monster, though thankfully we haven't seen him since she showed up. It's been very quiet, really, so we've just been spending time together and trying to get to know each other, which is harder than you might think, with the lack of talking and all. At least I know she understands what I'm saying.
