Our All God's Children Referral pictures

We got our referral from our agency, All God's Children, back in October of 2008. They sent us
several pictures of our "Little Beauty"...back then we weren't allowed to post her pictures or her name. We had switched to their Ethiopian program in January 2008. (originally in their Guatemalan program).
It seems like so long ago already...when all that we had were a few snapshots. They meant so much to us then and helped us get through waiting for our court date in Ethiopia.
The waiting is over...she now has been home since January 16, 2009....
I didn't share any of these until now...but thought you might enjoy seeing a few of our referral pictures too!








Yup, she stole our hearts and she was well worth the wait! Thank you God!


And a word on adoption...
Amazing

Wow, it's hard to believe she was so little, she looks big and healthy in the current pictures! thanks for sharing, and thanks for the sweet card you sent me! It came in the mail today. We mommas can never use too many friends, or too much encouragement.

My family knows the comfort of refferal pictures... aren't they amazing! We've adopted from China. My SISTER Emmy Xiang is such a blessing... praise God for adoption!
