You have a week full of so many exciting events that you just can't sleep.
So in the middle of said sleepless night you grab your laptop to check on a webpage you have stalked for weeks.  And all of a sudden you are looking into the eyes of an angel.  Seriously.

My baby girl.

Do you recognize her? She doesn't look so much like a baby anymore!!

I am so excited for these pictures for so many reasons.

1. Her hair is LONG!  The last pictures I have of her where taken in May, these where taken this month.  Go back and look at the difference in the length of her hair.  You will be blown away.  Her hair means that her orphanage cares enough to actually take care of it  It also is a pretty good sign that she has NOT been transferred to the institute yet, even though she turned 5 last month.

2. She is smiling and just has a general light to her eyes.  Attitude much??

3.  I just love seeing that she is doing OK.  She isn't malnourished and someone gave her enough attention to do her hair and take these pictures.

Shannon lives in a region that is harder to adopt from then others.  And because of that it is going to take a special family (or single mom!) to step out and adopt this babe, but that's OK because she is extra special herself so it will be a perfect match!
