Here is our Gotcha Day photo from July 3rd, 2006. This was taken moments after Mia-Faith was placed in my arms. She was 21 months old, weighed only 16 lbs, had poor muscle control, icky skin and was sporting a buzz cut. She was absolutely scared to death.
I was thrilled to have her in my arms and thought she was absolutely perfect !!
Mia-Faith was wearing clothes way too small for her. She had on snoopy pants, a Pokemon shirt, new heart socks and sandals that were pretty snug and dirty.
This is Mia-Faith today. She weighs 21 lbs. She is still a very slender gal. She is well adjusted, melts our hears and is the center of our world. She has gained strength and balance. I saved the Gotcha Day clothes but she has never worn them again. I ditched the shoes in China. They were in awful shape. Mia wore them 24 hours a day for the first few days but after I got her to try on new Roobez-the old shoes were forgotten.
