Ella celebrated her 18th this week. We adopted her May 2002, where did that go? I'll have a proper post in the new year - have my first little bit of writing being published then in SEN Magazine and I wrote about her coming of age. Although that's debatable - some say 18, I always think 21 - just because legally they're an adult, well, there's some 21 year olds that I'm not sure should carry that title LOL!
Suffice to say she had a great time - party at school, followed by a party at respite. Then the next evening even more birthday cake. And her Godmother came round the day after that - so her birthday celebrations spread out over 3 days :)
