It's a Girl!

We just got the call this afternoon. We have a baby girl, born on January 12, 2007. (only 8 months old- YEA!)

Her name is Xue Hua, which means Snow Flower.
She is in the Sichuan Province in the city of Chongqin.
She is at the Dianjiang Social Welfare Institute of Chongqin.

Her medical report looks good. It says she is a good sleeper and is active through the day. She likes music toys
and likes to talk to her caretakers. (likes to sleep, likes music, likes to talk, yep- she is ours)

We don't have a picture yet but are expecting one tomorrow and our package on Friday.
WE are sooo excited to finally be parents!!!

I think I just leave a comment on a few days ago, so I will do it again. We are soooooooooooo excited for you and Vanous. I have shed many tears today for you, the baby and the memory of the day we got Lilli's info. A memory we will never forget. Lilli is absolutely thrilled and thinks she will be a good babysitter. We will continue to lift you and the baby up in prayer and pray specifically for your travel and the day that you are united with your daughter. This will be a moment you will treasure forever. I still can remember when they laid Lilli in my arms....all the worry was gone and she was mine. God is good and she is a very lucky little girl to have such loving and caring parents waiting and longing for her.

Love ya,
Ken, Natalie and Lilli

Wow! "Little Rose" is beautiful. She is truly blessed to be placed in a home with parents who have an endless amount of love to share with their daughter!
We wish you a safe trip and look forward to meeting this little angel.
