The Wait Ends

Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country. Proverbs 25:25

After 2 years 8 months 2 weeks and 6 days of waiting… waiting… and waiting… Today we have seen the newest member of our family.

Her Chinese name is Qian Xiu Lian. The first name is a surname that everyone in the orphanage gets. The second is really her first name which means beautiful, elegant, delicate. The last is equivalent to our middle name and means Lotus.

She was born February 19, 2008. She is in Chongqing. She is a quiet baby, loves music, her favorite toy is a rattle, and she is ready to smile. I can't wait to see that beautiful smile!

Oh, I just had to come back to look at her beautiful little face! She looks like a little delicate flower - a porcelain real live baby! It's hard to imagine that countries away a little one wait, not knowing that you and David are now her Mommy and Daddy. God is so good!

That is great. When do you leave?

Nikki said...

Yes she will have an American name as soon as Mom and Dad can agree. We know Therese will be part of the name as she has been our patroness throughout this adoption process. She prayed for a priest in China. We knew she would pray for our little one too.

I also can't stop looking at that perfect little face. I am looking forward to tomorrow when we get a few more pictures.

Hi Nikki,
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Here I am checking you out. She is precious! Congratulations.
4 girls!! Oh My....I have one. I often tease that God has a very good sense of humor. He gave me 4 kids in 3 1/2 years. When he gave me twin boys I just laughed. See...if he was a mean God he'd have made them girls. I love my Audrey but, whoa, she is going to be the end of me.
Your girls are gorgeous I look forward to reading more about them.

Oh, my heart goes out to are so very blessed. She looks absolutely adorable and I know you are looking forward to the day you can bring her home.

My aunt in Italy has two adopted children: a girl from Columbia, and a boy from Bolivia. They were welcomed into the family with open arms.
