I followed Jenn's blog closely while we were waiting on Ruthie and have learned a lot from their family and their blog. Traci, mom of Anna Bei, found me through the Yahoo group for Ruthie's orphanage. Ruthie and Anna Bei shared a room together in China and we even have a picture of them together.
Ruthie was real shy at first, but warmed up after a little dinner. I am not sure she remembered Anna Bei or at least she didn't run to her and hug her like a long lost friend. It was great to see all of these girls together. I hope we will have many more chances to connect as the girls get older.

*We discovered that Ruthie is not the only one who likes to pose for the picture. Karleigh Mei can turn it on for a camera too. Her sister, Lexi, takes great pictures of her at "Love Like Crazy". Both girls were very good at striking a pose. See below..
