Just for Fun Friday: Introducing Anah

One of the amazing things about living in this day and age is the ability to share with friends far and near the joys and challenges of life on the web. Since we announced that we were adopting Anah, we have been overwhelmed and blessed by the support, prayers and words of encouragement that we received from not only our church family but from those across the world! Now that we have officially been "matched" with Anah, we are now able to share her photo with others. We don't have very many but this is my favorite one. This was taken about a year ago, so she's probably a little bit bigger now. I think it captures her friendly spirit and happy heart. Isn't she adorable?

Over the past 3 weeks, we have hit some major milestones, including getting our paperwork certified by the state of California. As I write, our paperwork is now in the Chinese consulate, awaiting their authentication. When my husband picks it up next week, we will then send our completed dossier to our agency, who will then look through it and then forward it to China!

Thank you so much for joining us in this exciting  journey. I am looking forward to sharing more photos as we get them! Have a great weekend!
