We are thrilled to introduce you to our daughter, Wan Ying LingHere's what we know right now about our new little one:
Birthday: February 6, 2009, so she's currently 20 months old
Current Height: 30 inches (76 cm)
Current Weight: 19.8 lbs (9 kg)
Favorite activity: playing games
Favorite toy: dolls
Wan Ying currently lives with a foster family in the Jiangxi Province under the jurisdiction of the Children’s Welfare Center of Shangrao City.
Wan means a great number and Ying means reflect or shine, so I'm thinking we should nickname her Glitter... but Steve's leaning towards Dragon Slayer, so we'll keep you posted on the nickname wars.
We have submitted our Letter of Intent to adopt Wan Ying to WACAP (our agency) and they will add it to her file today. From there, we have many more bureaucratic steps to work through (see our full China timeline for the gory details) but we're hopeful that we will travel to China shortly after her 2nd birthday in March or April of 2011 to bring our daughter home! Happy, happy day!
