We have our baby's file!!!

We met with our agency today and got the translated information about our daughter and we are excited to share some of that with you. She is:

Zhi Meng - "Zhi" is the first word of the county where she was born and "Meng" means dream.
Born on October 8, 2005 - 6.5 months old
Weight: 6.5 kg or 14 lbs as of Feb.27/06
Currently residing in Zhijiang Social Welfare Institute, in Hunan Province
This is a small orphanage with many caregivers so the babies receive a lot of care and attention - YIPPEE!!!!!!
She is reported as quiet with a beautiful smile, likes to be carried, playing with her toys and enjoys sitting in her walker. Her eating and sleeping habits are very good. Her motor development is where it should be in most areas and advanced in others.

We are sooo excited and still a little overwhelmed that this dream is finally becoming a reality. Many thanks to all of you who have been so supportive while we waited for this day. We look forward to sharing the very exciting journey to having her in our arms.


*** Her referral photos below have been re-sized and re-posted.

So happy to hear you found out about your daughter. Her little face is so sweet and delicate. We also found out about our daugther. She is adorable and we also feel so blessed. She is also 6 months old. In the information it said she has a ready smile and laughs aloud. What joy! Thinking of you.
