Caitlin's Referral

May 26, 2006

The day that we have waited a lifetime for has finally arrived! Under the direction of a great friend (you know who you are!), we called FOI to see if they had any information regarding our little sweetie! Bob shared her name (Zhao Jin Lian), date of birth (August 7, 2005), and place of residence (Foster Care under the YuanLing SWI, Hunan Province, China). Due to technical difficulties, he was unable to send pictures right away, of course promising to share ASAP!

Through the night, the email containing her pictures arrived - WE ARE IN LOVE!!!!! Could any child be as precious as this one?

Immediately I raced to Shoppers to have 8 sets of pictures printed (you never have printer ink when you need it - LOL) - and called the family to tell them that we had pics. These were quickly dispersed, and various emails were sent to share the pictures with friends and family.
