I know - it probably sounds totally stupid - but letting go of these has been quite hard!
It's not easy getting soft soled shoes - especially in size 8 - but my dear friend Sandi handed these to me. She had kept them for her little daughter to be adopted from China also....until she got a boy! I loved them from the moment I set eyes on them - but sadly they didn't last Eb's feet long. Here I was trying to get her little feet in them until Graham finally said to me 'you can't continue to let her wear those shoes!' - point taken. I know it's not good for her - but gosh I loved them. The colour was perfect and so was the style. Bye bye again to something beautiful!
