New picture of Lexi!!

We got a new picture of Lexi!! When I first got it, I thought for sure it wasn't her. But Derek and my sister are SURE it is her. For some reason, it doesn't look like her to me. I am so excited! I thought that once she went back to the orphanage, we would no longer know what happens to her. She looks like she is doing well. I wonder how many layers of clothing she has on???

Wow, she's standing, somewhat on her own. wonder if she's tied in?
What a blessing you've gotten an update on her, so unexpected.

God is SO faithful, isn't He!?! I wish I could get my husband to lose the "r" and we could persue Lexi...she has been on my heart since you had to leave her in China to obtain medical care-perhaps this is just God's way of keeping her in our prayers. Thanks so much for keeping us updated on her!

That's really surprising that you would get a picture now! I'm sorry to hear about your job situation. Good thing we believe in food storage huh? You just don't know how things will change in a few months.
Take care!

What a great picture of sweet Lexi. So great to know you are getting an update from the orphanage. We continue to pray that someday both Lexi and Sophie will be well enough to be adopted.
