Your little Ivy is one of 3 girls pictured with our PInyi last fall, from the orphanage. The pictures we got from Jaime were of PInyi, Myah, and Ivy.

We traveled (at the same time as Jennifer Stone) in October, and I had no idea you were still waiting! SO thrilled she is coming home. Cannot wait for you and for her. Praying the trip goes well, and that she can receive medical care here soon.

Best, Krista
