A Little Bit About Chu Yan

It has been an amazingly exciting weekend. We received our Letter of Seeking Confirmation from Adopter yesterday morning and proudly checked the "We accept" box. Within 2 hours it was back in the hands of FedEx. We also received 2 pictures, our daughter's medical records and her State of Growth Prospective dated December 20, 2010.

We learned that at 10 months Chu Yan:

*Weighted 18.9 pounds
*Was 26.3 inches long
*and had 4 teeth

*sits alone quite steadily
*crawls on hands and knees
*stands with her hands holding support
*picks up small things with her fingers
*tears paper
*transfers blocks form one hand to the other
*reaches and grasps a toy beyond
*imitates words
*distinquishes between acqaintances and strangers
*is quiet and active
*fond of music and toys

Her favorite activity is playing outside and her favorite toys are blocks, a cloth doll and a musical doll.

We are fortunate to receive this information and much more. We are in love and very proud to be her chosen as her parents.


our daughter.

Can It Really Be True?

We have waited until CCAA has officially stated that referral have been made through June 2, 2006. I am confident to say that we are NEXT. What that means is probably between the 2nd and 3rd week of March we will be receiving the call that we have waited 57 months for. We will update as soon as the next set of rumors are confirmed. Thank you for your continued love and prayers.
