Joy and Wonderment

oops...i'm such a mess right now I messed up on the birthdate year...she was born THIS year on my birthday which seems like a year ago! Our girl is 7 months old. Once we have worked all the details out I will share more!

WOW! That is all we've been saying for the last hour. WOW!

Here she is! OUR DAUGHTER and SISTER!!

Yi Xiao Cheng

We know VERY little of our very little little girl. But this is what I can tell you....the red thread is amazing!

* She and I share birthdays. Yes she was born on my birthday last year...April 17, 2009! I remember EXACTLY what I was doing on that day! WOW! WOW!

* From what we can "translate" she was placed in foster care on May 20, 2009...our wedding anniversary. WOW! WOW! WOW!

That's ALL we've got! OMG!! WOWOWOWOWOWOW!

We will be getting more information on Friday. For now we will just stare at her picture and continue to fly in the clouds! Thank you all for your wonderful comments and love! THANK YOU!! for being patient for Mike to get home but we had to see her picture together as a family first. And yes, knowing that email was in my inbox for over an hour was excruciating! But after waiting 45 LONG months I thought I could wait a few more minutes. I have our first look on video and will post it when I can.




She is lovely and not doubt her beauty will only grow! especially in colour! LOL!
Where is she from?
Hugs Ruth in NZ been hanging out all day!

Wow indeed!!! She has the cutest little face. You guys are going to put a huge smile on that sweet face when she gets used to your lovin'.


I'm very curious about the characters of her name. Both of our girls are "Xiao" girls but share the less common meaning of that word (knowledge).

Oh she is so tiny! Congratulations!!! so happy for you.

Darn! I'm so excited that I can't type straight! I've deleted TWO of my comments already!

What I meant to say is that your baby is a lovely girl and I got goosebumps over the red thread connections! You said she was born on your birthday "last year" but then you wrote April 17, 2009. So was she born THIS year? Or last year?

Either way, she's precious! She seems to have really thick hair (like my Gwenny).

Congratulations Mommy! Yes, you already were a mommy but now you have another baby! How totally amazing is that!!

Congratulations!!! I am SO SO happy for you! She is darling and so young!!! I'm dying to know where she is from! She has the Yiyang baby prefix name! :) Is she from Jiangxi? Can't wait to hear all about your little darling. It is amazing she was born on your birthday!! That red thread is strong!!!!

Congratulations. She is absolutely beautiful! I am loving the red threads. Cannot wait to see the video. I am so happy for you!

Just found your blog from RQ. Congratulations! Just wanted to write to say that my daughter (still waiting in China) and I share a birthday too! She was on the SN list. But as soon as I saw her file and her birth date, I knew she was ours. Such a special connection! Congrats on your long-awaited match!!!

Amazing news!! Congratulations!
The red threads are just incredible... sharing birthdays. WOW!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! How exciting, what a blessing in so many ways!!!! Yippee!!!!!!

'Congrautlations' seems such a small word to convey how happy and excited I am for you all. But it's the only word I can think of this early in the morning :) So, congrats to you, Mike and big brother J on the arrival of your new addition. What a gift and blessing she will be.

Congrats! Your daughter is so beautiful. I am praying for speedy travel dates for you!
