Getting to Know Her

My heart this baby is delightful.  She is easily engaged, laughs, plays, and snuggles.  She is not very outgoing or secure yet in large groups and prefers to be held by her momma.  She has a small birthmark behind her right ear and an outie belly button that reminds me of a cabbage patch doll.  She was well loved that is for sure.   She seems to feel as if momma is here to serve her.  At breakfast yesterday as I was feeding her, a noodle dropped and stuck to her chin.  She almost wiped it away with her hand and then stopped to look at me as if to say..what are you going to do about this?  She jabbers, but is not speaking Mandarin yet.  She has no signs of  CP as listed in her referral.  She seems strong, clever, and loving!  She is beginning to know Toni and Anna as they are always following her around quick to serve momma as I meet her needs.  She almost engaged Toni in one of her games yesterday, but was too shy to do it in the end.  Of course, they are not pursuing her much as I am trying to get her bonded to me so they just sit back and watch from afar adoringly.  Anna did hold Anna Mei's hand last night.  She isn't much for getting down and walking though she did get down once yesterday and walk a few steps toward me.  She is very hesitant to leave me.  Her main coping strategy is to eat.  She eats everything!  She also drinks pear juice and loves the fresh pear juice at breakfast.  We may need to get a juicer.  I am nuts about her.  She is a gift from God and a delightful daughter.  I can't wait to have her home so my girls can be together.  We miss them and Daddy so much!


  1. She looks like a completely different girl!! She looks full of LIFE and LOVE already! Amazing! I'm blown away. In a moment of time, a Mama and a girl are paired together, suddenly there's joy, there's hope, there's love. These little ones can have their lives changed in just a day's time. Thank you for being her Mama!! Much Love to both of you and your travel companions too!
