HanFu Chinese Girl Matryoshka Print

Hi Everybody! This Pink Sweetie is modeled after my sweet daughter who loves pink! Pink and purple are her favorite colors. So she has a room painted lavender and a playhouse painted light pink. I don't know what it is about lavender rooms but I had one when I was little too. Anyway I digress, back to the point this HanFu style matryoshka doll is modeled after my daughter (who whenever she sees it says, "Look! That's me." which makes me smile), and in honor of her origins. Our daughter is a Chinese American born in China and adopted by Eric and me at 11 months old. She is the Sun and the Moon and her Chinese name is Yun which means "Cloud". It's all celestial which is as it should be because she was sent from heaven.

Also, if you are interested in sponsoring an orphan in China Half the Sky Foundation is such a wonderful organization. They see to it that every orphaned child they care for is loved and nurtured. In honor of our daughter we have been sponsoring for years and I can tell you it is the most fulfilling thing I have ever done second only to adopting our daughter. Love to you all, Amy :)
