Presley with hair!!!

We received a few pictures when we got Presley. These pictures were taken just a couple of months ago before they fixed her lip and also before they shaved her head!! I can't wait for it to grow out again!!

Hmm, Better hair, but no lip repair. Today, Lip repair with no hair. A change for the better in the long run definitely, although I know it doesn't matter to you which way she is. As Mum always said after I'd cut my own hair, hair always grows!
I think you have a beauty on your hands; a happy smiling eating beauty.

She is so beautiful. :) Reminds me of my first daughters referral pix...grapes keeping her modest. LOL

Nora was nearly bald when we got her as well--and she was an EATER (also cleft affected)! Nora also has those same big brown eyes and "suck-you-right-in" smile. I've read that kids who are resilient are easily able to charm people--I think your sweet Presley is a resilient child! That will help her connect and bond quickly. The only grieving Nora did was in her sleep, mostly just fussing. She's been home for five months and you would honestly not know that I didn't give birth to her (people even tell me that she looks like me).

We've loved following your story. It has been heartbreaking and so joyful at the same time.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Very sweet pictures but they do no justice to the personality that you have captured in your photos. Still it is so nice to have something from her past, something to see what she was like and what someone saw her as when she was younger.

Is she was Jiangzhang, Baoji? Our son is and that background and rocker looks familiar. Congratulations!!!!
