Just had to share the web site that sent us on our current path (we'll finally have a daughter now too, in 6 short months!)

Hi Jenny,
What a great website they have! Such beautiful pictures. We have a daughter that we adopted from Kunming, China in 2001. I cannot believe how lucky we are to have our Emma!

I cannot wait to hear about your referral. I remember our seemingly endless wait, and then that faithful December 17th afternoon....I was making chocolate chip cookies with our first two kids, and our agency called to say we had a daughter who was 10 months old at the Kunming Children's Institute. I took the kids and met my husband at our agency and we saw her picture for the first time--it was indescribably thrilling. My heart almost beat out of my chest when I saw her sweet round face.

Please keep me updated--I care!
Hugs,
Lisa

Thanks so much Lisa! How wonderful that you have Emma - I love your referral story! We think we'll get our referral in December too, and I started imagining how hard and fast my heart will be beating too as I read your story. How lucky we are to be able to adopt these sweet babies.
Thanks for caring!

Hey, Jenny--I am so happy for you. I am sure you have seen this website, but just in case....

It is a collection of China adoption stories. I use to wake up in the middle of the night when we were waiting for a referral and read a few at a time.
