The day I have been waiting for has finally arrived! After waiting 132 days, China granted approval for us to adopt Dang Qing Ji. Today, it is my great joy to introduce you to our dearly loved daughter, Katee Qing.
We first saw this little face on April 1, 2012. Her little smile melted us. (Her nanny must have known she would be coming to a family of primarily blondes when she chose that hat for referral pictures.)
SHE IS OURS!! We could not be more thrilled to add this blessing to our family.
Her file describes her as:
Favorite activity? Cuddling.
I won't know what to do with a child who actually likes to cuddle! After I had Calla (Miss Wiggle Worm), I prayed my next child would be cuddly; so, when I saw that listed in her referral paperwork, it was just a tiny piece of confirmation that she was our daughter.
We are praising Jesus today for this gift. Oh how He loves us! Based on what I heard from the agency last week regarding the status of our paperwork, I know He moved mountains to allow us to have this precious piece of paper today. We are rejoicing! I don't think I will get anything done today . . . and that is okay!!
Thank you for walking this journey with us.
