And did He send Flowers!

Did we ever wake up to an amazing "bouquet" this morning.
A smile that made us cry.
And ache.

Isn't she perfect? 

Last month, we sent a small gift to Maylin through Ladybugs N Love.

A package had been mailed to her SWI (Social Welfare Institute) in Tongliao from Ladybugs N Love.
It contained some candies, and nuts, a disposable camera, and money for a cake. The company requests a photo of the cake and child as proof that the gifts arrived and the money was used as instructed. 
We can't contain our excitement as we see her precious, happy face. 

In 5 short days, we meet.
Even if she grieves and does not have an easy smile for us at first,
we have the proof in the photos that she has a gorgeous smile and a twinkle in her eyes. 

What else is there to be said?

(Enjoying a laughing child may be my one weakness)


  1. Once Mark is done with his visit with former students of his and Anne's, I will ask him to try to enlarge the photo and just post Maylin. I'm not sure this computer has the ability to do that, like our home computer does.

  2. She is so. very. perfect. Seeing her so delighted brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. :-) Counting down the days with you!

  3. She is beautiful!!! What a wonderful gift to wake up too!!!

  4. I had the same reaction as Elizabeth - a smile and tears of joy for you! Can't wait to meet our little Maylin!
