Today we received two wonderful gifts.
A friend who lives in California made two beautiful quilts for Gemma and Teresa. Teresa's quilt has many hearts since she is in many peoples hearts. It is also filled with symbolism such as bamboo for long life and her fortune cookie. She also has religious fabric and lots of LOVES.
Miss Gemma "Loves" quilt has a lot of LOVES in it and many different animals.
The girls are snuggled up one the couch with their new quilts having fun looking at all the different fabrics.
Thank you Pattie ! This was such a heart felt gift that was made with love!
The second gift we received today was from The China Care/Half The Sky Home . It is a CD of all the photos of Teresa from May 2007- July 2010, and all the News letters that Teresa was in . These gifts are priceless to us . The photos show Teresa from 5 months old until the day we came to China to adopt her. My favorite photo is of her sitting by the door in her pink dress waiting for us to arrive. She was so excited. Some of the photos show how sick she was when she first arrived in Beijing. In almost all of the photos she is smiling . Her magical personality was always shining .
Teresa looked at all 200 photos with me. Her memory amazes me. She could remember everyone and everything that was happening . Her favorite ones are of her and Min Min ( they are outside playing and put flowers behind their ears). She also loves the ones with her Care giver in the China Care Home .
These two "Gifts" brought us so much happiness today .
