Mr. Bao Yun Fei....

....who is waiting for us in the province of Henan in Zhoukou city. Is he not the most handsome little dude ever?! I can't wait to get my hands on him!!
He is 7 years old and his papers say he can't wait to have an even more caring mother and father. I can't wait to give him that.

A little tidbit for ya~ Henan is China's most populous province with more than 100 million people. And yet, this 18-orphanage province placed fewer than 100 children for international adoption. I'm so happy he will be rescued from a life of no family or opportunities.

Isabella doesn't say much. She's so easy she'd be happy with whoever we got! Unless it was a baby. She is very certain she does NOT want a baby in this house.

Trey, on the other hand is excited! Bringing Isabella home has not been easy for him. (She gets a lot of attention. She REQUIRES a lot of attention! She's bossy and he hates that.) So, Trey is glad that he'll have a brother to shoot guns, play ball and wrestle with. Isabella is glad to do all those things with Trey, but then I stand on the side lines and constantly yell, "Careful! Easy! Be nice! Stop it!) Like right now as I type this- I'm telling Trey to STOP!

Another good thing about Trey getting a brother is that he won't be sleeping in the basement by himself. I'm not sure I would want to sleep in the basement by myself either!

Not sure of when we will travel. Homestudy is done. Dossier needs to be notarized, certified and authenticated. UGH! Then there's the fun part in getting fingerprinted (AGAIN) at the USCIS government office and waiting for DTC, LID, LOA, I-797, NVC, Article 5 and then TA! I have no idea how long all this takes.
But, I'll let you know as this progresses along.


  1. Good luck to you! Hope the wait goes quickly, but remember, God's timing is perfect.

  2. Woooo-Hoooooo!!! You know how incredibly ECSTATIC I am for you my friend!! There are no words to describe how happy I am for you!!!

  3. What a handsome little man. Can't wait to hear more and hope you get travel soon!

  4. HAPPY TEARS!!! HAPPY TEARS!!!!!!!!! Can not wait to have this guy in the "mix" with the other boys!! Fun, Fun!!! Trey was soo sweet today when Kade asked what he got for Christmas...and he said a Brother!!! Kade came running in to tell me!! Those boys make me so proud with their hearts!!! AND YES your guy is adorable!! Love you!!!!

  5. HOW DID I MISS THIS?????!!!!???? I am so, so excited for you!! He is absolutely adorable and well fit perfectly in your family. Oh...I am so excited for him...and for y'all!!

    Watch out...I think Isabella might need a sister, now!! :-)
