The following pictures were taken May 30, 2011. Natalie was 16 months old at that time.
Here's what we know so far:
Natalie is in the Province of Jiangxi in the Shangrao City Children's Welfare Center which has a nutritional program sponsored by Love Without Boundaries. I was so happy find out about that. She drinks milk and a rice-based formula. She also eats porridge and noodles.
Her favorite activity is to play outside and her favorite toys are the musical ones.
Natalie is a deep sleeper and she is potty trained (her Daddy was particularly happy to hear this). She can walk if someone holds her hand. She is a talkative, extroverted girl who likes to play with toys and gets along well with others.
I am so happy that I have been crying off and on since 10:30 yesterday. My heart is just so full of joy that my body can not contain it. Natalie Wanhan is a dream come true. I am so ready to love her and do my best to give her the nurturing she needs.
