WE GOT OUR REFERRAL!!!!!!!

I cannot believe I'm posting this!!!  Just when we thought that no referrals were coming out, I get onto China Adopt Talk site to find that the CCAA updated their site to say they have matched through March 14th!  I started calling family and was on the phone with my MIL when I GOT THE CALL at 11:24 a.m.!!!!!!!

HERE'S OUR DAUGHTER:
Her name is Chen Yong Yi
Born:  7/8/08
Province:  Hunan
Chenzhou Children's Welfare Institute (CWI)



I cannot get over how she reminds me of me when I was a baby!!!!!

Pin It!

  37. Congrats! Your daughter is beautiful, and you are going to be getting her at such a fun age, and just in time for her first birthday hopefully!

    Our daughter is also from Chenzhou SWI which is an amazing Half the Sky orphanage, and I am so thankful for the care she got there for the first year of her life. She came to us as a healthy, happy and well-adjusted child and bonded easily, as they get very good care at Chenzhou. They just built a new SWI there, too.

    If you want any more info, for sure join the yahoo group for Chenzhou and feel free to go to my blog (you can link from my message) and send me an email, too.

    Spicy Hunan girls are awesome :)

  60. HI! I just had to write and tell you how beautiful your little girl is. We have a little girl that is from the same orphanage!!! She was 9 mths the day we held her. I just wanted to let you know that she was in such great health and you could tell she was loved! She couldn't walk(not even trying) but could crawl and LOVED to be held! She is now 2 1/2 and I cannot tell you what a blessing she is!
    I am so excited another beautiful ChenZhou baby gets to be with her forever family! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me..we have a blogspot if you would like to look at her then and now. Oliviadenae.blogspot.com is the first one from the beginning and our updated one is langley6.blogspot.com. Please feel free to ask. My personal email is mystyfy@comcast.net if you need to ask anything privately!!
    SHE IS GORGEOUS! Congrats!!!
