Miss Mia-Faith Xin He

We paid to have our agency translate one of the papers that we received with Mia's referral. It was wonderful to have a few answers. I know there is debate about sharing personal issues but the overall series of events is pretty basic. If she had a personal letter left with her we would probably not share that information.
Reading all this really makes me want to go and bring her home. She sounds absolutely perfect. This is a picture from the orphanage that Mia is in. I think she is in the back row. These pictures were taken this year.
I want to bring them all home.
