We have been very fortunate to receive these new, updated pictures of Mary. I joined an online yahoo group for families who have adopted children from Mary's Social Welfare Institute in Shanxi, China. One of the mother's from that group put me in touch with an American couple who live in China and volunteer regularly at Mary's orphanage.
We can't believe how much bigger Mary has grown since the last pictures we have of her (taken 8 months earlier at one year of age)! I have been staring into her eyes all morning, they are so beautiful!
