Labor Has Finally Begun!!!

Well, the call that we have been waiting for for nearly 6 years came this morning at 11:37. Our precious Emma will be making her way to her forever family. At this time all we know is her Chinese name, Gao, Jiana. In China the surname is first and is the same for all children in the orphanage and then Jiana is her first name. She was born on 4/27/10, which is almost one month older than Ethan. She is currently at the Gaozhou Social Welfare Institute in the Guangdong Provence.

We will be receiving a UPS package on Monday which will have pictures and more information. We will post more then, so check back and check often to keep up with how our labor progresses.

Blessed be the name of the Lord God Almighty! He is faithful!!!
