We are thrilled to finally be able to introduce our sweet Mia! Her Chinese name is Dang Rui(pronounced Dong Ray) and she is from Nanyang City, Henan. She was born on February 13, 2008 and just turned 15 months old. She was born with a congenital heart defect and will have surgery soon after coming home.
From her reports at 11 months old she is crawling, knocking two blocks together, and pronounces a letter consciously. She is also described as quiet and having a ready smile. Boy is she going to be in for a change when she comes home because our boys are anything but quiet! She is currently in foster care which we consider a true blessing.
It is hard to believe after all these months of waiting and praying we finally have a daughter. She is truly an answer to many prayers and WE are the lucky ones!
BTW we only received three pictures of her and I lovingly refer to her look as the "bundled baby" look. Doesn't she look thrilled? If you look closely under the hat it does look like she has a head full of hair perfect for hairbows!For this child I prayed; and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him. 1 Samuel 1:27
