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.

DS230s and Article 5s - Things are moving along quickly

We got some great news this morning. Our DS230s were delivered to the Consulate on the 3rd and  came out on the 4th (last night)! Wow is that fast.  According to our agency, this means the Article 5s actually came out of the consulate as well, and were sent to our Agency's Beijing office last night. As soon as they get them, they will walk them into CCCWA we should expect to get our TA soon (travel approvals).  And then we also got some updated photos of our kiddos.  Looks like the boys both got hair cuts (hopefully it will grow out some before we pick them up - they both look like rough cuts :)

Ella JingLan
Love that smile.
Doesn't she looks great in her pink coat?

What a sweet little thing. 
Looks like its a bit chilly in his room - he's all bundled up.

Hum - where is his big smile? 
 Can't wait to get him home and hear his big belly laugh we've been told he has.
