And...........MeiMei's a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Abigail would like to introduce everyone to her baby BROTHER (not the sister who Mama and Baba initially planned for, but the brother she dreamed of), Joseph Li of Henan Province!  He just turned 14 months old.

Things are moving very fast: we got his referral on January 29th, Chinese New Year's Eve
then had to wait an excruciatingly long week for CNY to be over to lock his file the following Friday.
Then, on Monday, we received our Letter of Acceptance from China. 

Now we are furiously scurrying around to find a crib, dresser, and get clothes for a boy (since we had saved all of Abigail's old clothes, many dresses with tags still on them, of course, since she won't wear dresses!!).


  1. That is awesome!! I didn't realize you guys were initially waiting on a girl. He is too cute! Congrats!

  2. Yes, we were waiting for a second girl for about a year from MCC, then switched to "no preference" and were matched in under a week!!

  3. Congratulations! I have been anxiously waiting for news!!

  4. That is so wonderful! God planned for him to be in your home.

  5. Congratulations! So excited for you! He is darling!

  6. When will you travel? I am excited for all three of you!
