With a New Year, Six China Families Prepare to Welcome a New Daughter

On December 31, 2007, six of our families adopting from China received referrals, each for a beautiful little girl. These girls, all from the Guizhou province, range in age from 14 months to 4 years old. The girls’ new families waited 25 long months for this day, from their adoption paperwork submission to China on December 19, 2005. We expect these families to travel in about 8 weeks. Congratulations!

With UPS closed for the holiday on New Year’s Eve, referral photos and each child’s medical information were quickly translated, scanned and e-mailed directly to the families to bring in the New Year with much celebration.

What a great start for 2008!
