We have more pictures!



We got our FedEx package this morning and we have 2 more pictures of her. We also have the correct spelling of her name and the correct height (see post below). She's from the Yulin SWI (Social Welfare Institute) in the Guangxi Province. She's been with a foster mother since April 13, 2007. I'm thankful for that, as she would generally be better taken care of with a foster family as opposed to the orphanage.

We are so in love! How is that possible to fall in love so quickly? She's beautiful and absolutely perfect. That Halloween birthday was the sign that tells us that she was meant to be with us. We're so blessed to have this beautiful baby in our lives, I can't wait to bring her home (will be in 5-7 weeks).


Thanks to everyone for the wonderful comments! I'll be printing those out for her to see when she's a bit older!

She is so tiny and so cute! I am also very happy to hear she has been with a foster family. I can't wait for her to be home.

Congratulations! She is a cutie! Come join the Yulin, Guangxi yahoo group with us. I adopted our DD last November. She is from the Yulin 1st SWI. This yahoo group is for Yulin and Yulin 1st. They have lots of pictures of the orphanage and local area. Here is the link. You will love Guangxi!

Your daughter is absolutely precious! She's from the same orphanage as our daughter. We will travel to China to bring her home at the end of August.

My little cousin is such a doll!! Talia and I can't wait till she comes home. Talia has already went thru some her clothes and said "momma, this don't fit me, I'm going to give it to the baby." We look at her picture every day!!

My wife and I just received a referral of a child from Yulin SWI, sitting in the same yellow chair as your daughter is. Would love to correspond with you, as you're on the other side of the adoption process and have been where we have yet to go.
