Daddy feeds Mia congee at breakfast - she ate the whole bowl!
Dressed for our special day!
Walking the hotel lobby - smiling!
Mia is really coming out of her shell - laughing, smiling and commuicating!
Daddy gives his girl a hug!
Mia is so tiny and looks more like a 9-12 month old. She walks, but seems unsteady at times. Her feet are so tiny that the Robeez look like clown shoes! I tried to find sandals in a store down the block, but even they were too big!
I notice a huge difference between Mia and the other two babies in our group, both who were in foster care. They are bigger and seem to act more like their age. One of the babies is almost two years old and the other is a month younger than Mia. I know she will catch up, but it goes to show how much of an impact foster care is on the babies development. Mia is doing great, she has the pincher grasp and tries to commicate, but she is so tiny and petite - she is just a dream come true. We are both in love.
Dreams really do come true ~ it was hard to believe at times, but with time, faith and hope...here I sit in China...blogging and listening to her sweet sounds :)
*Anthony and Eddie, it was so nice to "see you on skype again - you guys make us so proud and we cannot wait to give you big hugs - we love you guys!
