First Family Pictures

This is the family picture we took right before Derek left, about an hour after we got Presley. It is a picture of a picture, so it isn't very clear and she wasn't super smiley yet!!

I've been following your journey since your referral for Lexi. I feel like I've shared in your high's and your low's and now with Presley. She is beautiful and stunning!

As a mom of 2 China beauties of my own (1 girl, 1 boy), all I can say is, AIN'T IT GREAT!?!?! Presley crying as you go towards a door is a VERY GOOD THING! *bonding to you*

I hope you receive her passport ASAP and you can leave soon. But, don't forget to shop just a little bit! ;o)
