She is just SO beautiful. I have tears of joy and happiness.

Her name is lovely! I just can't wait to see her join your family and for you to hold her and love her. She needs that. Lilah is going to have a lot of fun with this precious girl! You will have almost twins! :)

Jody said...

Congratulations family!!! How absolutely wonderful!!! Very, very excited for you and I also agree that it is great for the girls to be so close in age. "Artificial" twins are the best :)

p.s. Now I understand the facebook message.

Colin and Jill Canada said...

I've been back to see your beautiful daughter a few times now. Nobody's counting right?! ;)

Anyway, I am just putting the pieces together here and realized that her actual given Chinese name is Jie. Nope, not Mei. Gosh if that is not a sign, what is?!

That's pretty amazing!

Although she is only a Jie Jie by what? 14 days?


Denise said...

I'm just beside myself, giddy with excitement for your family! How amazing that it all happened as quickly as it did - wow!!

It's funny that the first time "we" adopted (as in you and I), ours was completed first and about a year later Lilah came home, while this time around, we will be waiting at least a year after yours will be done. Good thing we're keeping it even :) Just don't go talking me into another one ok? lol
