We Have Updates:)

We Just got updates last night on the girls.  Measurements, answers to a few questions, and PICTURES:)

Iley XiaoKui with her foster family. Check out the pictures above the TV:)!!
 I think this was taken at a visit to the orphanage.

 Wren Da Yu, hamming it up for the camera.
 Wren and her favorite Nanny.
 Wren and her friends at the orphanage.

 Is this a model of her new house?

 Her teacher.

 Wren and a stuffed Pleasant Goat......this is a popular cartoon in China.

Now what they say about them.
They've grown! Wow!

Wren ~ Ht. 41.37"        XiaoKui~ Ht. 37.43"
Weight~ 40.79lbs.         Weight~ 30.36
Waist~ 19.7"            Waist~ 18.52"
Foot~ 6.3"               Foot~ 5.12"

They say that Wren doesn't have a favorite friend, she gets along well with all of the kids.  Her personality is described as active, outgoing, generous and clever.
They told though Dayu can’t hear, she is a clever and well-behaved little girl. Her imitation ability is excellent. She is a kind girl and likes to help others.  They also said they would honor our request to have the girls put next to each other for the short time Iley has to come back to the orphanage before adoption.

Trying to get information on Iley is MUCH more elusive! They describe her personality as active and outgoing.  Their concern for her would be her health, and hope she can have surgery in America.(Lord willing! she will:))  They have promised us the "special soup" recipe when we meet.  YES!  We get to meet her foster family!  That is very unusual, and we are excited but nervous about how this will effect Iley.  Please pray for her to understand, and for this to be a good thing, and give her some closure.

Thank you all who are praying for us!!! It means SO much!

  1. The pictures!!! You were right!!!!!!!! The Good Shepherd!!!!
    Oh God is SO good!
    What a great idea to request that they are near each other when Iley goes back to Z! Oh I am SO excited for you and the girls!!!!! Go get them!
    (maybe you should go on line and look for those Good Shepherd pics!!!)
    I wonder if there is a way to let the foster family know you are believers too...
