She's not 3.5!

While Jason and I have only spent a few hours with Gabriella, I can tell you now that she is NOT three and a half years old.

She is much like an 18 month old. Much of this is due to being in the orphanage for a time. We continue to get conflicting reports on the amount of time she spent there before being moved into Chinese foster care through the Grace and Hope for Children program. Nonetheless, she was in an orphanage; and, although she was favored because of her beauty, she was still neglected.

Our little preschooler is really just our baby girl. It may take a year or so to see her mature in to a little preschooler.
