CHINA NEWS

I'd like to update everyone on what's going on with our adoption process. On Sunday night, April 12th, Roger and I made the decision to switch to China's special needs program. So right away, that next morning, I called our agency and made the switch. There were a number of reasons why, which I won't get into at the moment, lol, but on this past Monday, May 4th, we got the call from our adoption agency that we've been waiting almost two years for. They had found our daughter. After careful deliberation and review of her file (about two minutes), we called the agency back that same afternoon and accepted the referral and made it official.

So Roger and I would like to introduce everyone to who will in a couple months be officially our daughter, but who was meant to be our daughter since the day she was born, Lu Min Wen, soon to be re-named Ciara Rae-MinWen Sherwood. She was born April 1st, 2007 and she is from the province of Anhui, China. These pictures were taken on October 30th, 2008 when she was 18 months old. Isn't she just gorgeous?? This is the part where you say YEAH!!!

Congratulations to both you and Roger! Ciara is adorable. I especially like the picture of Ciara, sitting on the floor with the toy dog beside her.
