Match Day!

We got the call!

At 12:16pm today, our agency called and let us know we have been referred a baby girl from China!!!

Her Chinese name (given by the orphanage workers) is Yang Fu Ya. Yang is a surname taken from the name of the county where she lives. Fu means good fortune and blessing, and Ya means elegant and refined.

She was born on June 29, 2008. This is probably a best guess by the orphanage workers, but we will find out more about the circumstances in which she was found and brought to the orphanage as we proceed through the process and get more details from China.

Below is a photograph of her, taken at around six months of age.



Join us in thanking God for this wonderful news!

More to come as we go through this process.
