We sent a care package to Tallula and her foster family for Chinese New Year.
And we sent a list of questions, with no idea if or when they might be answered.
We didn’t have to wonder too long, though. We received not only answers to our questions, but two new pictures of our little robust girlie…
(1) Who chose her name and why? Does she have a nickname?
The orphanage staff picked that name for her, Juan means beautiful and pretty. Her nickname is Juan Juan.
(2) Has she had any health problems or allergies?
She does not have any kind of allergies.
(3) What medical treatments has she received?
She is quite healthy, so she does not receive any medical treatments.
(4) What are her favorite foods and activities?
She loves to eat meat, she does not like to eat fish.
(5) How would you describe her personality?
Smart, outgoing. Strong will. Fast response
(6) Does she have any likes/dislikes/sensitivities?
She likes her foster family to take her to the streets and sit in the electronic musical rolling horse.
(7) What makes her happy?
New clothes makes her happy.
(8) Does she have a special doll or toy that she sleeps with?
No,she falls sleep pretty easy .
(9) Was a note or any other memento found with her?
(10) What else would you like to tell us about her?
She is an amazing and good girl.
Oh. my. gosh.
Cannot wait to squeeze her.
SO cute, and her hair, I can’t wait until you go pick her up ~ it’ll be so fun to see if she has lighter hair or redish highlights. What a cutie!
I’m with you! My goodness. Could she be any cuter!?! Sweet girl, who sleeps fast. And likes new clothes? Keeper. Keep. Er.

She sounds like a hoot! This is a girl who knows what she wants (and gets it)!

OH MY GOODNESS!! She’s a doll baby! So so cute!
New clothes make me happy too. Riding the mechanical horse? not so much- 🙂

oh, so sweet… how blessed you are to receive such a lovely update! we are also waiting on an update on our own “juan”, and after reading your post i at least know what our daughter’s name means 🙂 (that was one of the questions we had as well). it always concerned me, well, because “juan” is also a boy’s name for “john” in spanish which i was less than excited about (we live in socal with a large migrant population). so happy for you and your little miss…
That is wonderful!!! That second pic just melts me. She is just truly so so cute… can’t wait to see her fall right into the mix with your other precious ones. It won’t be long now!
Amy Meeker says
OH MY GOODNESS! She is just so cute. She may give you a run for your money. Can not wait!
She looks and sounds absolutely amazing. Congratulations to your whole family!! (P.S. Casting almost complete! Casts from tenotomy come off in one week — all went wonderfully! Thank you so much for strongly encouraging us to put our trust in Dr. M!)
How special. She is such a cutie. And who doesn’t want a new little doll to dress up, LOL.

So we have three beautiful foster babies. One who we plan on adopting and two who will be adopted by another family. I love them like my own children and the day that I have to give them up will be the hardest of my life. This is the thing though if they went to a family like yours I would rejoice with all my heart! I can only HOPE that God finds them a family as wonderful as yours!
This is most definately a Tallula!!! She sounds like quite a character! No flies on her… It will be fun to watch her grow up on your blog 🙂
Oh my word. What a beauty! ‘New clothes make her happy’….my kind of girl!!!
Ok, I am staring at that second picture and she looks like she is standing on a scale!!! 🙂
She is so yummy I can’t stand it.. I can’t wait for you to go and snuggle with that bundle of love! And, “fast sleeper” who loves new clothes… A girl after my own heart!!!!!
So happy she is going to be with wonderful you SOON!!!!!! Can’t wait to pray you through another precious journey!

I don’t know if I’ve ever posted before, but I’m an adoptive Mama to 7 and a Southern girl living in the Pacific Northwest….BUT…..I had to post to say how A-DOR-ABLE Miss T. is! Those cheeks, those bright eyes! She’s beautiful and I can’t wait to see her home with Poppy and her Mama and the whole crew!
So happy for you!
so cute!!! She looks so healthy and inquisitive!!! Can’t wait for y’all to get your arms around her!!!
“She is an amazing and good girl”……that part made me get all teary. I’m so glad she’s been well-loved by her China family and will soon be meeting her forever family! She is the cutest thing!
She is so beautiful! What a blessing to get such a sweet update!
How precious! She is a doll and sounds like an amazing little girl.
She is gorgeous!! Congratulations!!!
The first picture just screams “come hug me!”
JUST PRECIOUS!!! And yes, robust LOL!
What is that machine in the background? It looks like a blow dryer at a Mom and Pop hairdresser LOL!
BTW, how in the WORLD have you kept this secret from the blog-o-sphere for so long? I am IMPRESSED!
Congrats on your newest BLESSING!!! I have been a bit out of the loop LOL!
Can’t wait until you can bring her home. And I can’t say I’m surprised! 😉
