In awe...

You will never believe it! My hands are shaking as I write this. Yesterday some other adoptive moms & I fasted & prayed. I really felt like I needed to just lay the idea of getting any updates before the Lord and to trust Him whether we got any or not. I felt a peace about going to China without any updates...and guess what was in my email this morning??????
4 BEAUTIFUL pictures of our Georgia as well as pictures of her hands and her feet, ALL of my questions answered and updated measurements!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She looks so good and the nannies must have had fun because they did a little fashion show and she is dressed in 3 different outfits! She is VERY bright eyed and looks pretty mischiveous.
I cannot post pictures until we get our LOA but here's the answers to my questions:

What do they call her?
Yu Xian.
> Does she have a special toy or blanket?
She loves bright color bells or balls.
> How does she like to be comforted?
Hold her and talk to her, play games with her.
> What makes her happy/ what does she like to do?
Sitting on the floor mat and play with other children.
> What is her personality like?
She is active, restless, outgoing, social and loves to play games.
> Are there things that she does not like or that scare her?
She is afraid of loud noise and strangers.
> What words is she saying?
Ba Ba, Ma Ma.
> How many times a day is having blue spells/turning blue?
Her lips and finger nails turn blue when she cries or having too much activity on the floor mat. When she is not crying, not having much physical activities, when she is quiet, she has blue spells now and then.
> How does she fall asleep?
She goes to sleep around 8:00pm.
> Is she using a bottle or sippy cup?
She uses bottle for formula, uses spoon and bowl for congee.

Her updated measurements:
Height: 76cm; Weight: 10kg; Head: 44cm; Chest: 45cm; Teeth: 15; Foot: 13.5cm.

OK...I'm off to stare at some pictures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Praise the Lord!!!
He is so faithful to hear our prayers and answer!
I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday. I am in awe
of how God blessed you one right after another! I wanted
to share that our daughter Jaden who recently turned 4 yrs.
(has been with us for 2 1/2 yrs.) When we were praying the
night before last she just starting praying away for your precious
little girl. Brought me to tears, as all of your recent post have.
In Him,

Awesome news Shannon. I am impressed w/ her weight too! S weighed just 10 KG when we got to China, at 35 months old!!! It sounds like Georgia is very stable. I know you are aching to get to her, but don't you love it that God has smiled on you in a big way today!!! Thanks for sharing of His faithfulness!!!
