Guess who has dimples

We were waiting for the passports this afternoon and Maia saw one of her Friends from her orphanage. She smiled!! Maia has dimples! She started playing and everyone came over and started saying "Look at Maia!". It was wonderful! Then on the bus ride home she had a very bad attack of stomach pains and screamed for 40 minutes. She passed out when we got back to the room. When she woke up she was playing and laughing for about 45 minutes. She still has eating, stomach and bathroom issues but it's getting better!

Hi Keith, Tricia and Maia,
I'm so happy to hear that Maia is starting to warm up to you two more. She's a really lucky little girl to have two such wonderful and loving parents with her and two amazing brothers waiting for her at home. Keep you chin up because she will come around. She is so pretty. I loved the pictures of her smiling and playing. Her dimples are the best! We think of you guys all the time. Keep safe!
love, Carla & Cenk

Hi Tricia, Keith and Maia,
My daughter had major stomach pains after starting to drink milk= we found out she was lactose intolerant. We found this out around one year of age.

Oh my goodness! I almost cried when I saw her beautiful smile! I am so happy that she is soooo happy! We knew she had it in her, she just needed time and love and patience! I am sure it is a relief to both of you to see her so happy. Hopefully her stomach issues clear up soon. If anyone can help her, you can Tricia....

Happy Birthday Maia!
We all can't wait to meet you!
