Our Little China Sunshine

20 months of preparing and praying
7.5 months of gathering document after document
11 months documents sitting in China
2 hours being fingerprinted like a common criminal
6 hours with a social worker proving we are fit to parent
19 months without news of any kind
Nov. 18, 2009-First Glimpses of our new Daughter--PRICELESS!!!

Welcome to our family-SHILOH
Wang HongMei--11-11-07
Age: 2

Shiloh lives in the Qingshan District of Baotou City in Inner Mongolia (Northern China) at the Baotou SWI. (Social Wedlfare Institute-orphanage.) She is described as happy at play with other children, loves books and music and is sometimes shy. Dakota is so excited to finally be a big sister. She had to carry a picture of Shiloh with her to Pre-K today. Actually Chuck and I carried Pictures with us today as well--we are already proud of this little person that we cannot wait to love. Thank you God for this gift. Now the real waiting begins...
