Christmas Day

Xing Xing brings delight to Christmas Day, despite our uncertainty re An Lin's health status. We take a walk on Nassau Point beach and XX photographs her Mom and Dad. She is the light of our life and we want to bring her the joy of a little sister (mei mei). We know she will be a great big sister (jieh jieh.) We are hoping for good news soon..........

Our international pediatrician has advised us that there are inconsistencies in An Lin's medical info and has recommended that we request additional records from China. Our agency supports us and now we wait............ A difficult time..............

Here She Is...........

The Fed Ex has arrived and we get to see our youngest daughter in color! She is beautiful!! Xing Xing is smiling, adjusting to the idea that she doesn't have a "baby" sister she can carry (or boss!)around. We have sketchy medical at this point, but have been told all looks good. Complete translation of 17 pages of Chinese medical info to arrive Monday. We are very happy!
