IT'S A GIRL!!!!

"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has given me my petition which I asked of Him." 1 Samuel, 1:27

It is with incredible joy that Robert and I announce the referral of our daughter, Lily Grace! I got the call at work this morning and have been spinning ever since. It's been such a long process, it began to feel like it wasn't real. I'm still in a state of shock and can't believe she is finally here. Here is the information we have so far:

Birthdate: 8/15/06, so she is 8 1/2 months old.
Chinese name: Yu Lian Wang-we will get the translation soon.

She is in the Jiangxi Province at the Yujiang Social Welfare Institute. The most recent measurements were taken on 11/30/06. At that time her height was 22.44 inches and her weight was 11.24 pounds.

We will get our FedEx package tomorrow with her picture and will be sure to post it as soon as possible, so stay tuned! In the meantime, here is a link to read up on where she is waiting for us: http://www.travelchinaguide.com/cityguides/jiangxi/

Hurray!!! You must be spinning. It's been a long wait, but well worth it. When will she be in your arms?
