WooHoo, We Have PA!!

Hey sweet girls your Mama and your Babba are so very excited- we have received PA! This means that China has given us pre-approval to be your new parents- we still have a ways to go before we can bring you home and make it all official but we just want you to know today is a step in the right direction!!

We are so grateful to God! Back in June we did not know if it was going to work out. We had many people praying for us and praise the Lord here we are on November 12th jumping up and down with excitement!!

You two are coming home this spring! I had to congratulate Sarah and Anna- once again they were going to be a big sister and a little sister! I told Sarah there will now be two more kids to hold the big jump rope! No more waiting for Mama as she says just one more minute honey, just one more minute! The girls are thrilled and we toasted to Emma and Ellie with our sodas!

Thank you Jesus!


  1. Hi Jean!!!
    I have followed your blogs since you and Katie were in China for Sarah! Your blog gave us the courage to submit our LOI for our new daughter, Shasha...I believe I followed your blog to Sarah, because she is from Nanjing (am I right) and our daughter Livi is from Jiangsu! Sometime in the last year we made the decision to adopt an older girl and we found our girl on a list in September...Well today I just had chills when you revealed Emma and Ellie's pictures...They are from Guilin and we have pictures of them with our future daughter!!! Please contact me at so I can share them with you!!!!

  2. Wonderful news! I don't know much about Chinas adoption procedures... but a step closer is a step closer and that is priceless! Hooray!

    I can't wait to see them home and part of your beautiful family! :) Thanks for sharing with us!
