What a day!!


What a wonderful orphanage group we have! This is the second family that has been so generous as to take a photo of our QiuQiu for us during their orphanage visit!! The father of QiuQiu's crib neighbor, Katie, took this amazing picture! I'm just bursting with pride, and so thrilled that he held her hand and she seems to be smiling up at him!! Many, many thanks to the Pearsons for this wonderful gift!

What a gift! Seeing her smile like that must make the days between now and travel feel like TOO many! But it won't be much longer... can't WAIT to see you all together as a family :)

I just want to rub my cheek on her fuzzy little head! Seriously, when you get the baby and you visit Vail, you HAVE to call me. I really want to meet the little one! (Oh, and you guys are cute too, but I promise not to rub my cheek on your fuzzy little heads!)

I'm Chrissie's friend, and I know we've never met, but I FEEL like I know you. Congrats on the exciting, BEAUTIFUL new addition to your family. She's precious.

She is such a sweet baby. She welcomes people with her eyes and her smile. Her gentle nature shines through. Maia, I can't wait to see you and Mike with her. I wish I could welcome you home. We have come to love her and you, even though we have never met. This baby will open realms to you until now unknown.

What a wonderful gift-it is so nice to see people looking after her while you busy trying to get there-I have goose bumps!

Deirdre said...

What a beauty! And you're right--you're so lucky to be getting so many photographic updates during the wait. We had just one photo, which we memorized entirely, during the months between referral and travel. You have such a glimpse into her personality with these pictures.

She's amazing! I can't wait for you to hold her.
