Presenting our Georgia-Mei.......

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

James 1:17

Yes this means we got our LOA!!!!!!!!!!

So without further ado, here is our precious girl that you all have been praying for:



This picture was taken about 2 weeks ago!!!!!!!!

And this was our first look at her sweet face!

I got the call from our agency this morning while Honeybun and I were on a coffee date before her Audiology testing. She kept saying, "You're shaking mama...Georgia is really coming!!!!"


We still have to wait for our Travel Approval (TA) but this document means that Georgia is officially ours in the eys of the Chinese government. More travel updates to follow as we have them (and more picture...I just thought I would spread them out!)

No, don't spread the pictures out! Post them all!!! The TA will come faster that the LOA, at least that's what the numbers indicate. Hopefully you are in China holding your beautiful girl in 2 months or less! Congrats! This made my day! Love, Staci

Yes, I'd love to meet up someday, we live so close! Enjoy this feeling of LOA arrival. It's wonderful. I was so happy I didn't want to eat or sleep and ended up physically ill...I wonder what TA will bring? Anyway, enjoy these moments. We're getting close!
