Kodak Moment...PRICELESS!!!

I received an email last night from Adele at www.blessedkids.com telling me that Doodlebug’s birthday cake had arrived on time. She also said that her contact in China had four pictures of Doodlebug that were just recently taken if I would like to purchase them. Of course I would like to purchase them!!!!! At any price!!!! The pictures are not very clear, but they are invaluable to us. I didn’t crop the other children out of the pictures because some members of our travel group may be monitoring this blog. I know that they would be thrilled to see a picture of their child if she just happened to be in one of these. Before we got Desheng Darling, a group of missionaries visited her orphanage and posted several pictures. DD was in a few of them and we are so thankful to have these early pictures of her.

The pictures are great, but I can hardly wait until she is here with us and we can wipe that serious look off her face. No baby should be that serious. I think back to DD's first pictures and then I think about how she has lost that seriousness. I hope that Hope will overcome her's as quickly as DD did. Love, Aunt Muh
