Madeline's Finding Ad

Today, we received Madeline's Finding Ad in the mail (from Brian Stuy). Madeline is almost 22 months old now.

The ad says that she was left on the day she was born, with a note, at the gate of a local school in Qinzhou. The ad was placed in the newspaper on November 20th, 2004. That means Maddy is less than four months old in this picture. I think she's precious and I knew instantly that this was our baby!

Just adorable. When I got Sophie's finding ad (the whole newspaper), I just cried and cried. The two-page spread of babies cut me to the heart...and then the whole thing of "out of all those babies she's ours."

That picture is beautiful but also so sad! I am thinking of you often, as I see so many "Gwens" and "Madelines" in the streets and playgrounds here. It's so amazing to have a daughter but not to have her yet. You must be so proud but also worried sick about her. I wish you and here the best!

PS In my last sentence, I meant 'her' instead of 'here', of course. Sorry! ;-)
