I'm blown away, by that amazing generosity of such wonderful, kind hearted people! This gorgeous gift, came today, from a wonderful family in Chicago. Gosh, this gift brought tears to my eyes. The photo really doesn't do it justice. The "PingYuan China" gift, is actually a highly polished wooden jewelry box, with a white tile with the graphics printed on the tile. Its absolutely stunning. Such a precious gift.

Next is a "collection"! (coz I'm too lazy to take individual photos!) Starting on the left, and moving right - the white outfit, is from me! (couldn't resist! how cute is it?!!!) I was also trying to experiment with "non-pink" outfits!!! The second gift are the 2 little fabric books, that came from an amazing couple in Queensland... who are only DAYS from seeing their sweetpea! (finger crossed guys!!) There is a little "ladybug" book... its so CUTE! Next is a gorgeous little dress from some good friends, who brought their gorgeous Jiangxi Princess home in August 2007 - a cute little blue dress with polka dots! I love it!!! (apparently the little Jiangxi Princess has one too!!!) Cool! Twins!!! And last but certainly not least - is a "too die for" coz its so darn cute sleepsuit, with little fairies all over it!!! Aaawawww!!! And I must say a huge THANK YOU to this very generous and beautiful spirited girl! She also sent a "bow holder" (the orange ribbon you can see in the pic) and some cutesie little pink bow clips! I was stoked to received the bow holder... coz (amazingly!) I don't have one!!!

(I probably should've taken this photo on the plain sheet... rather than the quilt... makes it all a bit "busy!)

I'm so so grateful. YOu guys are just too much! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I can honestly say, without you guys... I think we may've thrown in the towel a long time ago and never seen our beautiful daughter.
We have our itinerary.. .more details tomorrow!
