    One of my co-workers and her husband have been in the process of adopting a child from China. They (finally) found out that they getting a beautiful 15-month old girl! This has been an emotional roller-coaster for them; please say a prayer of thanks that all is finally falling into place for their family.

    They are still waiting to hear for sure when they travel--likely not until late June or the summer. They did find out that their little girl is in a foster home, not an orphanage, so that is making the wait a bit easier. They have been waiting this entire school year to find out information about their child; I'm so thankful that they finally know who she is.

    IT's an amazing experience, getting that name and picture. All of a sudden, it becomes real. It's like the first time your baby moves when you're pregnant. Being a parent instantly goes from a concept to a reality.

    That's how she described it. Suddenly this abstract concept of adopting a child became a reality and they have a daughter! Now they just need to wait to hold her.
