At long last ...

On November 5, 2008, after 2 years, 8 months, 2 weeks, and 5 days of waiting, we FINALLY received THE call!!!

Here’s what we know so far …
Her Chinese name is Jing Hai Lan.

She was born 12/16/07 in the Jiangxi Province, and she is in foster care.

On July 20, she weighed 13.7 pounds (a tiny little thing) and she was 26.4 inches long.
She can hold her head up when she is on her stomach and she can roll over. She can pass toys between her hands and pick up beans with her fingers. She locates sounds and can follow the direction of sounds. She laughs out loud (yeah!!!) and distinguishes strangers. She is closest to her foster mother, knows her name, and recognizes facial expressions.

She is a deep sleeper, but active, and

We have not seen her photos yet (they’ll arrive tomorrow) but she has lots of hair and there may be red highlights in it! She has cute little cheeks, and a tiny little nose.
We are over the moon!!!

Will post photos after they arrive tomorrow!!!

Four years ago today ...

... was one of the happiest days of my life. When they placed the PPJ in my arms, a part of my heart leapt from my body and found its way into hers.

I was hers and she was mine. We had found each other from half a world away.

My love and wonder for this precious child just grows stronger every year.
I have got to be the luckiest wife and mother on Earth!

A special birthday wish ...

The PPJ celebrated her fifth birthday with some good friends. Before she blew out the candles she made a wish. Later she told me ...

"I wished that PPP will come home soon."

Hi! I am Pootiepie and this is Pootiepie Junior (aka PPJ). We have been waiting for a very long time now to bring home PPJ's mei mei, Pootiepie Petite.
My DH goes by the name Daddy ... creative, I know.

Anyhow, we missed an October referral by a mere 2 days! The cutoff was 2/15/06 and we were LID on 2/17/06. So next month is our month!!! We have waited a long time to complete our family. Daddy, PP and PPJ look forward to the day when we will finally see the face of our precious Triple P (Pootiepie Petite).

Stay tuned!!!
