Lilly and Alexei have a sister!!!!

Alexei and Lilly have a BABY sister! Rory is 6 months old today! Her birthday is Jan. 6, 2007. She was born 1 day after we got to Haiti to pick up Lilly. I guess she wasn't ready before that!. Get this Rory has blond hair! No I am not kidding. She is the lightest asian baby that we have ever seen. She is just beautiful. She is from Hunan, so we have a spicy baby! She likes music and toys and is impatient. Sounds like we got the right one. Lilly likes to give baby Rory kisses (she takes the special picture that the agency made her and she kisses it). Brandon is going back to work and will scan the pictures for the blog. They should be up in about an hour! We are so excited. Thanks for all the well wishes these past few days.

Congratulations!

My daughter is a Spicy Girl from Hunan, and her birthday is Jan. 6, 2003.

They're not kidding about the "spicy" in these girls. They are strong, vibrant, and and absolute lights in life! Oh, they are very good at demanding their way too. LOL!! Can't wait to see her pics.

Congratulations! I saw your post on RQ. We live in Kaysville and just returned in March. Out daughter is 14 months old and we got her from the Hubei Province (just north of Hunan.) I know the almost 2 years you have waited have been hard. However, if you are like us, the next few weeks are even worse. You know have a picture but can't go get her. Hope your TA comes quick.

wonderful! What a beautiful little baby! We have a match too but our agency won't call us until Monday. Sigh, just a little longer. Thanks for the picture. She was such a joy to look at!
