Ok...you made me cry. Words do not do justice to these tender moments we witness between the meeting of two hearts. They just take my breath away.

And she was so tiny!!!! But we see her beauty even then. I just love them all. The ceiling shot is stunning. I'm so glad your sharing your China pictures!!

I love the name of your blog, I completely know the feeling of seeing "Chinese eyes smiling." They always warm my heart. The photo of Isabel laughing in your arms is priceless. I LOVE it! You must have been on cloud nine when that was taken. Wow!
