Imagine, if you will, a child who spent the first 12 months of her life confined to a crib (albeit a nice crib) with no access to the outside world. Then look at these photos again - her face turned up to the sun and the open sky.
Our daughter had it better in her orphanage than most. And yet, our daughter rarely saw the outside world until the day of her adoption. So you can imagine the source of her joy and her sense of wonder.
