Introducing Fu Yan Hao - soon to be Makenna!!

I love those chubby cheeks!


How cute is she?!


Ok I am totally new at this blog thing but I will try to figure it out so that people I care about can follow this process. On December 29 we received a referral for a baby girl in China. To make an extremely long story short we started the process to adopt over 3 years ago. When the process that was supposed to take 6-8 months had stretched beyond a year we started to worry. We had all but given up hope that it would happen for us when Makenna showed up! Our baby is Fu Yan Hao and her birthday is February 9, 2008. She is currently in the Fuzhou SWI in Jiangxi province. I will keep this blog updated about when we travel to bring her home and all the other details. We are thrilled beyond belief and can't wait to hold her in our arms.

Dana,
I stumbled onto your blog by searching for Fuzhou SWI. We were just matched with a child from the same orphanage, and have a picture of our baby in the exact same car!
We hope to travel in early Feb.
Good luck to you,
