I stumbled upon a momma online who was headed to Xuchang SWI yesterday. I contacted her and asked her to find my baby girl. I didn't even have to beg her as she was more than willing. Alison found her and loved on her for me. She told me that her crib was on the end of a long row of cribs and that Anna Mei was very hesitant to give her any eye contact. Anna did let her hold her and kiss her on the cheek. She also took several pictures of her for us. The Internet is terribly slow in Henan, but she sent one to me. Anna was dressed in boy's clothing which is not at all unusual for an orphanage. There are so many to dress that they don't take time to be gender specific. It looks like they may be letting her hair grow out. (How I hope so!) Anna is also wearing a hat which opens up a whole new fashion possibility for this momma to consider. GOODY!! I can see my Jillian in Anna's eyes today and I am desperate to get to her. It sounds like we may have a long hard road again as far as attachment goes, but I am ready. I want her home. These next five weeks can't go fast enough.
I just keep staring at her and thinking..She is beautiful!
