STILL NO NEWS! We joined a web site for families adopting from the Pingnan SWI. One family returned a few months ago and posted pictures of their daughter. We were so happy to see our baby right behind her (in pink). Mariah and Caeli were so excited. We can't wait until we can hold her and play with her.

WHAT WE KNOW... The baby is from the Pingnan Orphanage in Gaungxi Province. We were sent this picture from the orphanage. We think she was about 13 months old when this was taken.

4th of July We thought that we would be in China by now. The girls have stars and stripes bathing suit and we had hoped that their baby sister could wear hers. Still no TA (travel approval) so we spent the 4th of July at the Waterpark without our baby.
We are so anxious to receive our TA and yesterday the adoption agency told me that it may be another month to a month and a half before we hear anything. We had hoped to be back before school started, now it's looks like we won't leave until September or October. I had hope to have her before her second birthday.
