Our ladybug

Fan Yi Lian (pronounced Fan Yee Leann) was born February 25, 2009 which makes her about 9 months old.

(My birthday is February 26!)

She's currently in an orphanage in Hubei province. On August 17 she weighed 11 pounds and was 24" long. Her medical is described as normal. We will receive our package tomorrow and we'll have even more information then.

I just can't believe after all this waiting that we are matched and have a picture of our little ladybug! She is a tiny little thing too! Thomas and I are so excited! The wait was definitely worth it! I'm in love with her already and can't wait to huggle and snuggle with her!

We are also adopting from Hubei province. Our daughter is almost 5 years old, and living in Huangshi SWI in Hubei. We are waiting for our I800, had a little delay, so, perhaps, we will meet in Hubei. Your little girl is so precious. You must be over the moon.

We saw our daughter for the first time yesterday also-we're in love already. Our little girl is from Jiangxi Province-Poyang SWI...we are waiting for our packet with more info today also. It's true what they say-the years of waiting seem so worth it now that we have her! Good luck with the next step of the process-I'm hoping time flies by and I am holding her in my arms!
