You were 64 months old a few days ago.
As her mother and I compared notes and I combed through my pictures later that evening, I was so amazed to find her in the few photos I have from your time there.
I am so happy for you that you have another contact from your infancy. As Kate later pointed out, "Just like I have Lina as my friend from when I was a baby, now you have one too!"
In fact, we now know three children from your time at LuoHe. N is below in the pink, Eli (whose mother contacted me a few years ago) is next to her in yellow and you are in profile.
You are center stage and N is in the red shirt and just this week I was contacted by a family in Italy--their son, H, is standing behind you in the green shirt. He was adopted in February 2012, five months after you came home.
And learning oh so much! I have to include a picture of your school work from this month. You talked about this map for 2 weeks straight, about how hard you were working and how great it was going to be when you could show it to me. Finally the day came and you were so so proud! And so am I--that was a lot of work!
Bella happened, and your world has not been the same.
