This beautiful girl is Ninon. She is almost 4 years old and she lives in France. Ninon is from the same CWI in Xuwen, China that Maia is from. Ninon's mama, Marianne, is such a sweet lady and she and I email frequently. The funny thing about Ninon is that when we were waiting for Maia I used to look at Marianne's blog and marvel at how beautiful Ninon was. It was such a nice coincidence when we got our referral and Maia was born in Xuwen too. Marianne emailed me a few times in China when Maia was grieving so badly. It was nice to hear from someone who had been through it too!

Absolutely beautiful! Maia is such a big girl on her bike! I haven't found a bike that's small enough for Olivia, but Maia and O are about the same size so I'm going to keep looking. Take care and enjoy your 3 day weekend.

THank you Tracy for adding a pix of our Ninon on your blog. It is indeed such a coincidence that you had been looking at my blog before Maia referral and that both of our girls are from Xuwen. Really amazing as we all know Xuwen is a very small orphanage. So the probability was really tiny... By the way, the drawing on my blog is not Ninon's, but from her cousin Diego (4 1/2). Love to you 5 + special hug to lovely Miss Maia from us.
