A bit about the Himsels
In July 2011, we were drawn to a posting by our adoption agency of a little girl that was soon to "age out" of the orphanage in China, and they were hoping to find her family before her birthday in February, when she would no longer be eligible for adoption. After reviewing the information, giving it alot of thought and prayers, we knew she was to be our daughter. So we started the paperwork chase to bring her home. But God had a bigger plan in mind for the Himsels. Along the way, we decided to pursue adopting a little boy, and that journey actually led us to two little boys, who are 18 months and 14 months old. All three children are located in the Guizhou province. We are excited to be so close to bringing home Ella (Jinglan), William, and Ethan, and we hope you follow along with our journey.

NVC Letters Arrived
Finally, we received our NVC letters (National Visa Center) letting us know that our I800 information had been forwarded on to the Consulate in China. Another major step forward in getting our appointments secured for finalizing the adoptions. Of course, all of the offices in China are now closed, but will open back up Tuesday, and we should hear something soon on our official travel dates. Keep your fingers crossed that we will be traveling on January 25. The sooner we can bring home those adorable children the better. I can't wait to get my arms around each one of them.
