Long Xiao Hua

Here she is!
The newest member of our family.
Chinese Name: Long Xiao Hua.
Province: Guangdong, Shenzhen City
DOB: August 30, 2004
Height: 40"
Weight: 33#

Long Xiao Hua is 5 years old and likes to sing, read books and play with her toys and friends. She is described as active, talkative and outgoing.
Our prayers now are to help her grieve her losses. She will leave behind everything she has ever known; people, school, food, language, routines. We want to be here for her through discussion, tears and prayer. Attending to her grief is a critical element to integrating her into our family. With these things she will grow, change and become stronger.
Please pray that her transition into our family will be easy for her and us.

Trey is excited to finally know who his sister is and is glad she is 5 years old.
Wesley smiled, was pretty quiet and isn't sure about adopting an older child. We respect his concerns and pray that through this we can show others that adopting an older child is a true blessing.
