My African daughter is only 7,5 years old, but she is wearing clothes for a 14-year-old. She outgrows her clothes faster than I can buy them. If the hospital papers are correct - and there is no reason to assume they are not - she had a birth weight of 4 pounds only. Unbelievable!
Finding a pair of jeans that fit her is almost impossible. "Tunics" are the solution. In summer she wears them with a small t-shirt and when the weather is colder, she puts a long-sleeve t-shirt and a pair of leggings underneath. She can wear them all year round, until she outgrows them. It really saves us money.
