Thanks for sharing your call. How beautiful and wonderful. Huge congratulations to you and all your family. Mia is absolutely beautiful. Your agency seem so helpful in the phone call and I really like that they prepare you for the fact she will not be so chubby as the photos make her look. I was given a weight of 8.3 kg on custody at 7 months for my second and she actually only hit that weight at 13 1/2 months; she is small but healthy and Mia looks the absolute picture of health.

Congratulations again Mama.

Loved the videos!
I just thought of something kinda cool, you may have already thought of this. The penguins, are facing the same direction that Mia is, and it looks like she is in a flying position too, it's like your little penguin is flying home to you Krista!
And also, there are five of them, she was 5 months old at referral!
Neat huh!

well, you made me cry. congratulations on your beautiful baby girl once again :-)

kitchu said...

so amazing!! and she is so healthy!! 18 pounds, that is so great!! (to put things in perspective, E was only TEN pounds MORE at almost FOUR YEARS OLD!!!). she is so beautiful and you are already such a beautiful mom and omgosh i cannot wait to see you blossom with her in your arms krista!

and i think she is a good sized baby. 18 pounds at 6months is good!! (conversion is 2.2 pounds per kilogram, but you probably already looked that up).

so much congratulations. totally wish i were there to hug you.

Hey Krista, Martha is correct, Mia has about 3 layers of clothing on underneath the top layer. They really bundle them up so they are mummified!! My guess is that she probably weighs about 12 pounds at 6 months...tiny. So don't make the mistake that most of us made taking clothes that are too big. Take an assortment and you can always buy in China! MaryB

What an incredible gift this will be to your daughter, someday. My daughter has asked many times for me to tell her about when I received "the call". She just turned 13, and actually walked in one evening, when I was viewing part one. She sat down and watched with me. She noticed you were crying, and wondered why. "Because she's so HAPPY!!!" My daughter smiled and watched until the very end.

I had so many little things that happened during the process, like the significance of your penguins. Congratulations!!! Are you carrying Mia's picture everywhere? I remember having to hold myself back, because I wanted to walk up to strangers on the street with the picture and say, "This is my baby!!!" This was after making 50 copies of her photo to send to family and friends for their refrigerators!!!

One thing that I would really suggest to folks that are just beginning their life with their child is to make a hardbound book with a company like Shutterfly or Snapfish. I make one a year and find it all over the house because my daughter is constantly reading about herself and looking at the photos.

Krista,

Our Jiangxi daughter is from YiFeng. (a. 12/2005)...I think a little to the NW of your daughter's town....She was 14.5 pounds at 9 months when our data stated she was 17 pounds...so...you might have to guess a little on the clothing. .Your Mia is so beautiful. I have followed your blog for a little while. I am so happy for you. Sending many blessings your way as you journey to meet your Mia....
Always,
