Sometime around January, 2010 this top picture was taken to prepare the file of a very special little girl for international adoption. She ended up on the June 2010 shared list and was locked by our agency, who knew she would be perfect for our family. She popped up on our email the morning of June 22, 2010 and we sent in our Letter of Intent that very day. She had just turned 3 on June 3rd.
The second picture is Cara's 3 1/2 year picture. Big difference, huh?! She still has a little bit of a nervous smile, but she's getting more comfortable. The last picture is Cara with her brother and sister. The mischievous little side glance is a look we see frequently; usually right before she does something she's not supposed to! :0)
