After trying to adopt locally for months and months, I got Meredith via international adoption.
The nice UPS man delivered her just this morning.
After spending a small ransom to get her into the country though, I'm sad to say that I can't put her to work just yet. She's too big! She came in a purported size 5/6 but her shoulders are so wide and, unlike real arms are unflexible, so I can't get any of V's clothing over her head. Double merde. Apparently she's only good for modelling button front shirts.
I stuck her in the corner of my sewing room and named her Meredith. She can be my $125 tape measure holder.
