Let's back up a little bit

Here's a very early picture of Gwen. This is the picture used for her "finding ad". How old is she? It's hard to say for sure but I looked at pictures of my son at age one and two months and this picture seems to be about there. I'm guessing about 6 weeks old. Remember that Gwendolyn was declared to be one month old when she we found.

It's interesting to see that she appears to be wearing the same shirt in both pictures. She's about 11 months old in the 2nd picture. This was one of our referral pictures.

I wonder what the shirt says? Anyone know?

Update: Thanks to my friend, Eva, here's a translation of the shirt: "It says by sound: Li Lei You Xing Yuei You Wei Lai. That's eight Chinese characters, their literal translation goes like this: Li = benefit, Lei = happiness, You = have, Xing = emotion, Yuei = educate, You = babe, Wei Lai = future. I think Li Lei may mean the orphanage. It says something like: The orphanage cares, teaches baby about the future."

Okay, the shirt is less of a mystery now that I've looked at some pictures of other kids from the Shenzhen SWI. This shirt must have been a bargain when purchased in bulk!
