One Year Ago.....

today..... God answered my prayers with a big ole "YES" when Stephanie with Great Wall called me at 10:30 p.m. to let me know that she was able to get Li Qing Zhong's file. I don't think I slept much at all that night as her file was questionable and I was so fearful Hank would say no! Well as we all know, Hank did not say no and we have this precious little girl as our daughter now. To say I am thankful that we did not say no to that questionable file is an understatement!

This is what we knew of her then:

oh my goodness!!
now that I know her 
I can't believe that is her!!
believe me we still get that "look"
but it used to BREAK my heart 
in a million pieces

I am so very thankful she is MY little girl now 
That God is allowing us to raise
and she is so very precious to me
whining and all!!

my girl today

Yep, she is a mess!!:)
and loved as big as the sky and tomatoes!!


  1. Isn't it amazing to tell their story! Precious Janie!!! She is adorable and SO thankful she is home with her forever family!!! Blessings and love!!! XO

  2. I remember seeing all those sad looking photos as you would post them and think what a terribly unhappy little girl. I remember seeing the first photo of her smiling with you all in China, and I knew that she had the right (Wright) family! All of you are blessed.

  3. I requested Bella's file a year ago 9/1...we are both so blessed with these girls!!

  4. I love that girl from afar too!!!!!!! Once a Lilly, now a beautiful and joyful Janie!!!!! You are such a sweet blessing!!!!!!

    Thank you Hank and Paige for saying YES!!!!!!!

  5. Loved watching her blossom! This question I guess is for you or Diana-- how do you go about getting a file for a child at PRO? Are they all paper ready? Over the last 2 years, I have seen little ones on their blog but wasn't sure how you would go about getting information on them?

  6. What a transformation!! Amazing!! Her happiness is written all over her sweet face. So happy y'all listened to the call too!
