Be still my beating heart, China has sent our adoption referral!! "Microwether" is currently 9 months old and living in an orphange in Guangdong Province, China. She's a big, healthy baby girl who measured in at 16.8 lbs and 26 inches at 6 months (her last check-up).

I won't be posting any pictures of her on this blog until she legally becomes our daughter. This will happen when we travel to China to get her. However, I will e-mail her pictures to those who ask. Trust me though, if you can wait two months(!) you'll see TONS of pictures of her.

China!! China!! China!!

Thank you kindly!! Your name rings a bell, have we met (like at Rome/Cella's wedding(s) or has Rome just told us stories of each other?

Wow, exciting news!

Hey, will you pick me up a snow globe when you're in China? ;)

Ursula said...

What a memory! Correct on both fronts, weddings, and stories. :-)

A snowglobe?! Um, having previous expirence with Chinese baggage handlers can I suggest a less fragile doodad such as a jade pendent or a nice brass dragon? :-)


Merriwether the Adventurer said...


Ah, gotcha. Now I have a face with the name!

Give the Romano's hugs for me when you next see them.
