  1. Those will become priceless treasures as she gets older. As if her nannies wrapped her in every beautiful thing they could afford to give her as she left them. I like to think they wrapped her in layers of love.

    Hugs as you all get through this next part. She is a beautiful little girl.

  2. So many layers of clothes and only one pair of socks... It should have been two or three pair, to keep it balanced. :)

    I suppose you are going to keep these, to show them to her when she is older?

  7. Goodness. It has always made me claustrophobic looking at photos of Chinese orphanage babies knowing that they are almost immobile wearing all those layers. Poor baby girl having to sit in that wetness all those hours. I hope you all are doing much better today! Thinking of you!

  8. Watching so avidly! Love you guys. The second to last photo in the line, with her looking at you, so scared, made me cry. See you soon.

  9. That is so sad but look on the bright side.... she now has a forever family! I cannot wait to read more stories of sweet Mazie Jade.

  10. Will you keep these clothes for her?

    I'm not adopted but left my country when I was very small and have few memories and belongings from childhood. They are old and worn but priceless and mine and they help me remember snippets of memories.

  11. Ethiopians really layer the kids too... so sweet. And sad in a way. I am finding these posts hard to read.

  12. Mazie is a little cutie. I hadn't realized until reading these latest posts that she is from Jiangxi. We will be traveling to Nanchang, hopefully in April, to pick up our second Chinese daughter so I may want to pick your brain on what Nanchang is like for APs. But that can wait until you are home and settled with the newest addition to your family.

  13. Truly glad I found your blog. Love your truthfulness, the rawness, and the love emitting from your blog. Of course, we love all the happiness that comes along w/adoption, but to put a REALNESS on it, shows it from every angle. I can't wait to see the "layers" unfold on this precious child as love and patience excels her to a different phase of her precious little life.
