It’s a…GIRL!!!

This week, we received the call that we’ve been waiting for over a year!  Our adoption agency has matched us with a sweet, precious, beautiful, tiny, and perfect 11 month old little girl!  Her first birthday is October 23!  Yes, I am ending every sentence with an exclamation point and YES, we are ecstatic!!!!

This week was spent having her file reviewed by local doctors and specialists to make us aware of anything that we would need to know as parents. Tonight, we finished and sent our Letter of Intent to adopt our daughter.

We are ready to go scoop her up right this second, but the wait will continue for about another 4 months.  From here we wait for the formal Letter of Acceptance from China, apply for grants and fundraise to help finish funding our adoption, apply for visas to travel, get formal approval from the US government to bring this little one into the US, and then work on all of the travel details!!!

More to come, but wanted to share the amazing news!!!  We will post pictures when our adoption agency gives the okay!

How we thank Him for wrapping them all up in Naiya and allowing us to call her our own. Praying that our Father will speed up the time until we can all meet her in person, rock her to sleep, and love her forever! Love to all…Nana
