Saturday, December 10, 2005

For those of you wondering, I am posting a map of China and of The Guangdong Province so you all can see where our little angel lives. We will be spending most of our time in Guangzhou, wich is where the U.S. consulate is located, and more than likely staying in the luxury of the famous White Swan Hotel. More on all that later.
I am still on cloud nine
Ok , so there wasn't much sleeping around our house last night, and it wasn't all due to the excitement in the air (we are almost ready to give Alex back, hee hee). But lets face it, we haven't had such a wonderful day in a long time. The waiting was excrutiating at times, but absolutely worth it when you get to see your little girl for the first time. I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with her hair. My mom says it is official, she is printed out and posted on the Fridge. We think she looks very healthy and like a bright little girl. So Gwynne you are a Martin-Jamail now. Our dreams have come true.

Well.... we are over the moon!!!

We would like to introduce you to our new daughter Gwynneth Helen, formerly know as Jiang Cheng Juan . She is currently at the Yangjiang Jiangchen Social welfare institute in the Guangdong Provence. We expect to go to China in February to pick her up. She is 8 months old, has a quick smile, likes music and to laugh out loud. I know there was something witty and funny I was going to post with this happy news but I am too far gone and so totally in Love to remember anything!!! Isn't she beautiful!!!
Our feet are here, but our hearts are in China.

The Stork has been sighted.................

Well, this is it. Our adoption agency sent out an e mail today stating that our referral is on its way from China to there offices in Austin Texas. Sometime by Friday we should get "the call" where we will find out where in China she lives and how old she is, and finally get to see her sweet face!!! Although we really thought we would be bringing her home for Christmas, this is definitely the next best thing. We started this whole process officially January of 2005 so this has been the longest pregnancy I have ever had. And probably the most exciting, frustrating, stressfully and time consuming one yet! We are finally going to get our girl.

I know that Friday is going to be a crazy day, so check back at the Blog. I will post the picture just as soon as we get it. Thaks for sticking with us!!
