Surprise!! It's a boy!!!!!

Well, we decided to adopt a waiting child. He will be 3 years old on May 11. He is living in the Luoyang Child Welfare Institute in Luoyang City, Henan Province, PRC. He has a cleft lip and palate. His lip has been repaired but we will have to have the palate surgery after we come home. He looks like a happy little guy. He is smiling in all his pics. He also looks a little mischievous. I'm sure he and Mira will be getting into all kinds of trouble together. (that is if they can stand each other) LOL We have to send a letter of intent to China to get pre-approval to adopt him and our dossier will go to China as usual. After dossier goes at the end of July, our travel approval to go get him could come in 2-4 months. Then we could travel in as little as 2 weeks. There is a possibility we could have him by Christmas!! What a Christmas that would be.
More realistically, We are looking at traveling in January. If it is earlier, that would be a great surprise. We cannot post any pictures of him until we get pre-approval so as soon as that comes, we will post. Until then, here are some new ones of Mira.
