Psalms 126:3 The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy!
It is with overwhelming JOY and thankful hearts that we announce the referral of our new daughter!
Gan Xin Si (Xin is her first name, and pronounced "Shin"), was born October 6, 2005. She is currently in Jiangxi, China, and in the Jianxin Social Welfare Institute (orphanage).
Our paperwork has only been in China for about 5 months, and the current wait for a referral is over a year. However, we went through our agency's special needs program, and were matched with Xin! She has a hemangioma (sort of like a birth mark) on her hand/wrist. Hard to believe that makes her "special needs", but that's ok with us! We think she is just perfect!
Our "Letter of Intent" to adopt her is on its way to China, and once it gets there, we wait approximately 3 months for Travel Approval from China. Once we get Travel approval, we travel as soon as possible. The wait could be longer or shorter, so we are praying for shorter!
Thanks for sharing in our joy as we look forward to bringing home Gan Xin Si, soon to be....
