|This one is from Feb 2012. It's a picture from another family's little girl's birthday party. Their little girl came home about 7 weeks ago.|
We're planning on sending in the paperwork and payment for our homestudy this week, so we can get going on that. Sadly, we don't get to use the same social worker we used with Reese, as the agency she works with isn't Hague-accredited. We really liked her, too. Hopefully, we'll like this new social worker too. We're also working on getting various documents in hand for the dossier (like my mom's birth certificate, which we have to get from Texas).
Sitting here looking at her bangs in the second picture, I can't help but wonder if her hair grows at different paces, if she's that hard to cut hair for, if the person who cut it is that unable to do a straight line, or if she somehow got a hold of the scissors (given the random chunks missing). The orphanage has definitely taught her how to do the Victory sign, or at least a variant on it, because basically all of the group pictures she's in, she's doing it. It's cute, and fairly popular in China as I understand. Given that she'll be 5 in January, I guess I should probably be brushing up on my Mandarin. :)
