Unbelievably Blessed

Oooooohhhhhh my goodness!!! I've just received 2 new photos of Tiny (go ahead, scroll down... I WOULD!!!)


I wept like a baby when I opened them.

She is just so so so so so so beautiful (geez... I'm crying again!!) She's not just a little face anymore - she's a WHOLE baby!!! Oh my. She is real. One of the photos is date stamped 21st Jan. (yesterday!!!) This is what she looks like RIGHT NOW!!!

I sent Tiny a care package, right after we received our allocation. I didn't know if it'd arrived... til I saw these photos. In both the photos she is holding a little toy... I GAVE HER THAT TOY!!! I picked out that little phone, because it was colourful and had lights... her medical report said she likes toys with colour & lights!!! In the garden photo, you can even see the little label of her face, that I stuck on it!!! I'm so blown away. It also means, that she has seen US!!! I sent a little album with photos of our family.

Geez, I can't stop crying. She is our baby girl.

What am I going to be like when I actually meet her?!!! I don't know who'll howl louder, her or me?!!!

Enjoy the pics....

Pugmama... you may notice her hair still hasn't really kicked in... think I'll take those hair clips out of her suitcase!!!

Can I just say, to all those fabulous families still waiting for their Angels... I feel your pain. We experienced a 2 day batch just before we saw Tiny. Its so so disappointing. But scroll up a little.... I want you to know, that no matter how long it takes... you will be crying tears of joy...one day. ((hugs))

you give me hope.
She is stunning.
I sent you a package. After looking at her picture - I think she may be larger than I originally thought. The outfits may not fit her....I feel bad now.

That baby is adorable. Look how tiny her little hands are! What a gift to get 2 more photos of your little sweetie. So happy for you.

Now I have another question for you, how did you get her face on the toy?

Ava's family said...

Oh my goodness....She is so beautiful!! I do see a bit more fuzz on her head...However, I think it's safe to leave the hair bows at home! =)

She's just beautiful - I imagine these last couple of weeks could almost be the hardest but at least you can see her now - remember the frustration you had that day we caught up in Toys R Us?! Seems like a lifetime ago now doesn't it?! I'm crying with you.
