I Heart Faces - Blurb Photo Book

Presley in China

This weeks I Heart Faces is "My Favorite Face Photo." This picture of Presley was taken in China just 3 days after she became a part of our family. I have better technical pictures I could share, but this picture shows so much emotion and means so much to me. She screamed for the first 20 minutes after we received her and then she smiled the rest of the time! Our 1-year anniversary of our Gotcha Day will be on May 30! What a wonderful year it is has been!!

Oh I love this!! I cannot believe she was that happy right away!!! My most favorite photos are those ones from the first months after we brought Tia home, however I wasn't a very good photographer yet :) Great job on this photo - love it (and I love Presley!!)
