The Best Christmas!!

I have pictures of my sweet sweet girl's first years without me!

A group of us were tipped off about a website for a Chinese volunteer group in Isabella's city, Shenzhen. I spent all morning searching through several years of their various volunteerism.
I can't even put into words what it means to me to have these.

She looked at these pictures of herself over and over and when she got done she asked to watch her adoption video. I'm sure she's trying to put it all together in the order of her life, but I still wonder what goes through her mind when she looks at these younger pictures of herself.

I have over 60 pictures of her and her friends that she remembers. (Some of those pictures are of the back of her head clear across the yard/room though! I'm keeping any little bit I can get my hands on!)

This will be the best Christmas present I get this year, I'm sure!

Enjoy my sweet baby's pictures of when she was a LITTLE sweetie.


  1. Wonderful and amazing! How did you get them?

  2. These are great! What a blessing for you & Isabella!!!

  3. I forgot to tell you I searched the site myself and found a few of Fu Jiao!!! I will send them to you - don't know if I will post them or not.

    Great Talking with you guys.. I know it made the Empress very happy!!

    Hugs, Missy
