Digging to China

We have dug through a mound of paperwork and appointments and evaluations for the past year -- enough to make it to China -- and have found the treasure! A little guy named Min Yi Liu who is waiting to join our family. He will be 1-year-old on September 23rd, and we anticipate being able to have him home by his first birthday!
Nick and I have felt a desire to adopt since even before Abi was born. We just never felt like it was the right time. However, last May we both knew it was time to start on the journey of adoption. While the prospect of adding another child to our family is both terrifying and exciting, we know it's what we've been called to do and wouldn't miss the opportunity of loving him for anything.
We'll share more details of our journey soon, and when the appropriate paperwork is final with China, we'll be able to share pictures of his chubby little cheeks and spiky fuzz of hair.

How exciting! I wondered based on your message yesterday. There is an adoptive group in NWA filled with families of children from China. I am so excited for you!
