This beautiful illustration is by Maia Chavez Larkin, a very talented and sensitive artist, journalist and a mother of a gorgeous child Q. As mentioned by Maia, her inspiration on the drawing came from iza. I do smell the scent of iza!

From Maia's blog, I see the power of love enlightens the soul of a tiny Chinese girl Q, her adopted daughter. Many times, I have such an intricate feelings that from our Mother Country, there are so many abandoned little souls ... I'm so ashamed ... but now I see their happy little faces, I'm enchanted ... there's hope, there's life ...
And, thanks to Yoli, a mother of 3 Chinese children, sharing all the insights on child adoption. Adopting a child is far more complicated than I could ever think.
But above all, I feel the love!
Thanks Maia!
Thanks Yoli!

How tender of you! You have made me cry. It is an honor to have been allowed to become a mother to 3 of China's precious children. I know Maia feels the same. The painting is exquisite for everything that she does is magical. I do see your beautiful Iza in this as well.
