We have found our little angel!

We saw a picture of this precious little girl on the Love Without Boundaries blog on July 11, 2008, and she had just been placed on the shared agency waiting child list. We immediately contacted our agency (Great Wall China Adoption) to put a “hold” on her for us. We completed some paperwork and sent in our Letter of Intent to adopt her on July 12. On July 22 we received our Pre-Approval to adopt her. We are now waiting to get through the rest of the red tape. We hope to travel within the next 2-5 months to pick her up. She is in an orphanage in Shantou, Guangdong, which is in southern China. She is 10 years old (dob estimated to be January 6, 1998) and has a repaired meningocele (spina bifida). She is holding a picture of her and the Executive Director of Love Without Boundaries, Amy Eldridge, who lives near us in Edmond, Oklahoma. Amy has told us that she is a sweet, gentle child who loves to dance and sings like an angel and that what she wants most of all is a mama and a baba (daddy). Amy has known Qi for 5 years and told us that she would adopt Qi in an instant! What a gift from God to be blessed with this child! Please pray for us and our little girl that we may soon be united.

We will name her Clare Isabella JiaQi
