Here SHE is

She is 2 1/2 years old. Date of Birth is February 20th, 2008. She is from Guiyang in Guizhou province. We think she is awfully cute and can't wait to meet her. Our oldest son will travel with us. He is beyond excited. He will try any food and is very adventuresome so we can't wait for him to have this experience. It surely will make a lasting impression.
I think we have setttled on a name. Corinne suggested "Maggie". This name was never on our list but when I saw her face she just looked like a Maggie to me. Still waiting on DH to cast his final vote.
We received our Pre-approval (PA) from China on Sept 29th. Right now our agency tells us that we might travel by the first part of December. These things can be so hard to predict because China is always changing timeframes and the process.

  4. Well I've already seen most of these pics before, but my vote is still "very, very cute." Maggie would definitely suit her but I don't get a vote! ;) SO Excited for your family and I am thinking early December is VERY POSSIBLE! L
