We have a Daughter!!!!!!!!!!!

Today at 12:50 pm, we received a call from Wide Horizons For Children informing us that we have been matched with a little girl from Jiangxi Province, China.

Her Chinese name is Dong Fang Mei Ren. We don't know what it means yet.

Soon to be Chani Nicole or Chani MeiRen Miller. - We're still undecided.

She is currently in the Tai He Social Welfare Institute.

Her birthday is February 9, 2007 and she is almost 8 months old. A young little girl!!!

This is ALL that I know for now.

We will get her referral packet in about a week and that will contain her transcribed medical file, all the rest of the information on her and the best part, her picture. I'll post that to the blog once I get it.

We are beyond thrilled. What a glorious day this has been!!

My good friends daughter was one of the first adoptions from Taihe back in 1998. At that time, it was a very small orphanage with only about 20 children, but each well cared for and loved very much. Her daughter was very developmentally on target and healthy when they first met. Congratulations to all three of you!!
