My First Post

Dear Family and Friends,

We are delighted to tell you that God is extending our family once again through adoption.  He blessed us already with Haley, Sierra, Chloe, and the adoption of Caleb in 2008.

Our paperwork was logged in with China Nov. 12th.  We have since received a referral the week of Thanksgiving.  Her given name is Lian Yinmin.  We are naming her Bella Rose.  She will be a year old on Jan. 16th.  If the paperwork goes as planned, we should travel mid April or the first of May.  Our intentions were to adopt two on this trip, but due to some changes (again) in China's laws this will not be possible.  It is possible though that we can return with our first little girl and then go back to get another one.  We will have to keep you posted on that.
