BUT, not really...
because her measurements show she has shrunk 6cm...
and the pictures are from 2010.
To be honest we are thrilled to have these pictures of her from a couple years ago.
All of our children treasure pictures of themselves when they were younger.
She was 8-9 yrs old in these pics.
I hope we are able to get even younger ones than this...
and recent ones!
I guess while in the adoption process you don't get to pick and choose- you just take what you get!
Once she's home we will be taking plenty of pictures!
We also sent some question!
Mia is smaller than most of the children her age. She is under the 3% in height and weight. We think she is maybe a little bigger than Ava... Ava is 6 yr old, she will be 7 in June. Mia is 10.5... 11 in mid October.
We will be scheduling a visit to the endocrinologist once we are home! It is probably too late to be able to do much for her now but we will give it a try!
She speaks clearly (yay, no speech for this one, hopefully!)
Her Chinese is very good and she knows a few English words!
She is an average student but she learns very fast.
She likes to study Chinese and her favorite activity is dance.
She loves to play with other children.
That is a good thing, considering the family she is coming home to!
In the pictures it looks like she is sporting some new front teeth!
They said she still had 13 baby teeth-
Hello, unreliable and forgetful tooth fairy!
(that would be me!)
They gave us the name of her best friend!
We look forward to learning more about our new daughter!
