Here He Is!!



Here's our beautiful boy! We're still trying to decide on an English name for him, but Xinguang (pronounced like "Shin-gwong") will be his middle name- and, of course, the name that he will know himself as. We'll gradually transition him to an English name, but if he wants to be known as Xinguang, then that's fine by us.

He's living in northern Jiangsu province right now, and we cannot wait to get to him! But we have been told that it may take up to 6 months before we travel- of course, we're hoping for less but steeling ourselves for more.

His sisters are so delighted with him! We all are. Worth the wait? You betcha!
