Here Is Our Little Girl!!!



This picture is probably when she was 1 to 2 months old. She is so cute!!! (update- I looked at the date below her picture and it says 1-29-07 which means she was exactly 3 months old-- ahhhh!!!

So, here are the pictures of Mia. She is just so adorable. Look at her little features. They are perfect. I love how they bundle the babies. She is just a chub. Sorry the pics are not great. I had to take a picture of the picture. I will scan them in when we get home from San Francisco so we all can see better quality pictures. The last post shows all the stats, so this one is just the pics but I must say how unbelievably happy I am right now. Kevin is in the middle of the Arizona desert on a fishing trip with some of his friends so he has no idea we have even got our referral. Wow will he be shocked when he gets home tomorrow. My sister and I are driving to San Francisco now to go to our friends engagement party tomorrow night so I am just stopping by a Starbucks to get all this loaded so everyone can see out little girl. Enjoy the pictures and I will tell you more later. We need to get on the road. Long 6 hour drive ahead of us. I just thank God for this and I want to thank all of you in your continued support. I just cant express how happy we are right now.

  5. Congratulations! I've been following your story on RQ... I'm not a registerd user, so I can't post there... just wanted to let you know that we have a "Ba" baby too! We brought her home in September 2005. I can assure you that your daughter is being well cared for... she is beautiful! You have been blessed! FYI... There is a Yahoo group for Yueyang County.

  14. Christy - You know that so many people have been following your story (esp. since the fiasco last month). We will continue on this journey with you in prayers for your family and little Mia. One more tangle and stretch worked out and the red thread is getting shorter, and shorter, and shorter... CONGRATULATIONS and have a wonderful Easter weekend.

  19. Oh my goodness, Christy! I didn't expect to hear anything until Monday!!! She's gorgeous!!! I prayed that you would have a young baby too! I know that you would accept an older baby, but I have NEVER seen this young of a baby being referred! I'm just thrilled for you and your family!

    We got our Caroline in Hunan too. If you have any questions on what to expect in that province, let me know! You will most likely (but not absolutely positive) stay at the Dolton. A very nice 5-star hotel with great service!

    WOW! I'm just so excited for you!!

    Christy you refferal is the only happy thing I got from the RQ forum today. I was so bummed untill I saw your daughters face. She's lovely! It was a rough time for you guys, but seeing that precious face most have made things so much better. It made my day better for sure. Thank you!

  25. Congratulations on your referral. Wanted to let you know that Research-China.Org has the finding ad for your daughter. The finding ads have photos much younger than the referral photos. You will want to check them out.

    Come visit is at www.research-china.org.

    Congrats!

  26. Wonderful news!!! I'm so happy for you. She's beautiful! And so young!! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. Now you can see why this had to happen this way... because your Mia wasn't ready yet. :)

    PS. I'm so glad you re-opened your blog cuz even with the invite I could never access it for some reason. I was just sitting here very sad with a few tears over the latest batch numbers... until I saw your beautiful Mia. She put a smile on my face. Congratulations again!

  27. Christy,

    I keep hearing that song "At last..." in my mind. I am so overjoyed for you all. Mia is perfect. Her little round face is absolutely beautiful. I wish you all a lifetime of laughter, joy and health.

    Now I want to see her in your arms!!! Yipeee!

    Happy Easter to you all.

    Love,
    Kim (ber)

  30. Congratulations, Mama! What a gorgeous baby you have. So worth waiting for.

  31. What an additional blessing that she has been in foster care! She looks so healthy as a result. Foster care also really helps with bonding and attachment.

  32. Christy,

    We are soooo happy for you! (I know my husband's already been in touch.) Mia is the youngest referral we have seen from China! We thought of you often during the past month and are thrilled to see a happy ending! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. That being said, we really felt for you over the past month or so. Congratulations!!!!

  34. Congratulations and best wishes to your family. Much hapiness with your little girl for years and years to come.
    I am not so much in the "she was destined to us" thing. Rather, I think that since the CCAA messed up with your dossier, they tried to please you and referred to you the youngest available baby. So young that she was not even paper ready last month.
    Whether your hypothesis or mine, it does not really matter. She is now your daughter forever.

  35. I watched your story with such heartache for you over the last few weeks. It is SO FITTING that you were one of the first to receive your call this month. And she is just adorable. Many happy thoughts to you and your family.

    Hoping to receive our call tomorrow!
