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.

A few pictures of the kiddos

We've been quite busy since we got to Guangzhou, and it's been tough to find time to blog. On Monday morning Ella had to return to the Medical clinic to have her TB test read. She appeared to be a bit nervous to return, although I told her a number of times "no shots today", she didn't seem to be buying it. She was very pleased when it was a quick in/out.

After Ella's appointment at the clinic, we had arranged with Eva to go the safari park. Others had told us about it, and we thought Ella and Andrew would especially like it. I can only email 5 photos at a time from the iPad to post, so I'll post safari pictures after this one.

Here are a few picture of our kiddos - Daddy is learning to handle double trouble pretty well. William has really blossomed in just the week we've had him. He's like a different little boy. He's warming up to Mama, and has won over Aunt Nay. He even has Andrew playing with him now. Ethan is going to be our little trouble maker. But he just so darn cute it doesn't matter. He loves to crawl around and explore, and no telling what kind of trouble he cam get into.
