Ana Mei Seidenkranz, our precious little chubby girl!
Keep in mind they bundle up the babies so she has a lot of layers of clothes on.

She is now 18 months old. This is her at 13 months. At 14 months, she had 3 teeth, is a deep sleeper (yes!), weighs just under 20 lbs. (not sure if they are counting the clothes), and has happy expressions. Rarely does anyone receive a referral photo of a child smiling or looking happy. Our Ana Mei is smiling and looks happy! We cannot wait to hold her and see the changes that have already taken place.

It is common for the institutions to place an IV in a baby's head when they are sick. It appears that they have done this prior to the photo as it looks like her hair is shaved in the front.

Accepting our Ana Mei on paper!

We are so happy!
