SHE'S OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's official!!! She is OURS!!! China said yes and our agency received our LOA TODAY!!!!!! We can now tell you all about her:) Gabriella Graces' Chinese name is Sun Wenhao. She is residing in foster care in Taiyuan City and has a WONDERFUL foster family!!! When she was born she was 6 lbs and 6 oz and was 18 inches long ~ such a perfect size for a little girl!!! Our agency is projecting we will travel late January or early February ~ I can tell you I will be working all of Christmas break to complete my next to last MSN class in hopes of having it done before we travel!!! Our family is BEYOND excited ~ I believe the only thing left we need to get is a rocking chair for her bedroom ~ then, the most important of all... is bringing her HOME to her forever family!!!!

Oh Teresa! I am so happy for you! I know what a joyous day this was for your family! Praying for a speedy TA, so you can have her home with you soon.

A little about me... said...

Yay! Theresa!!! That is wonderful!! She is beautiful and in just a couple months you will be holding her in your arms and another child from the Shanxi province will no longer be an orphan!! That is such blessed news!! I am sure you are busy getting your I-800 out!! Wishing you a quick TA and a January travel date!!
