I emailed some pictures of Gwen to Ewa (a volunteer at Gwen's old orphanage) and she shared them with the staff at the SWI. Ewa said nobody recognized Gwen! So that made me want to search through our gazillion pictures to see how she's changed from month to month. I needed to find pictures where she wasn't smiling since she looks so different when she smiles
. It was hard but I found these. Then I removed the background so it would be easier to compare her facial features. I'll update this every month or so (probably less often when she's older).
Here's what we have so far:
| ||This is the earliest picture we have of Gwen. It's the one used in her finding ad. I'm guessing that she was less than three months old here.|
| ||This was her referral picture. Based on the length of her hair (compared to when we got her), we estimate that she was about 11 or 12 months old. |
| ||This was on one of her official documents. Again, based on the length of her hair, we estimate that she was 12 or 13 months old. |
| ||This is her passport photo. We'd been her Mommy and Daddy for about a week in this picture. Age 14 1/2 months old.|
