It's Official!

   It's official.....she's an Everitt! This picture was taken just a few minutes ago after we left the Civil Affairs office where we completed Maggie Mei's adoption.  The certificate Xan is holding proves that she is ours and we are hers.  woohoo!!

We arrived in Nanjing on Sunday night and had an appointment yesterday at the Civil Affairs office to begin the completion. Here is a snapshot from yesterday. Dong Mei came with us and she was just as happy as we were. It was a very cool time because we were present when 9 other families received their children. I walked into the office and was crying within 2 minutes. Such a beautiful day and I'm so thankful we got to witness those moments for those families.

We have two very happy girls and Stan and I are overwhelmed by just how good God has been and continues to be to us.  We could have never imagined how going through this process for a second time would grow our faith in such amazing ways.  We are blessed indeed.

Thank you for loving and praying us through this journey.  We will travel to the US Consulate in Guangzhou soon to receive Maggie's US Visa (allowing her to come to the US) and then we will be bringing her home to meet our very anxious families and friends.  We are so excited to introduce her to you.....I think you'll like her.

"Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy.  Then it was said among the nations, 'The LORD has done great things for them.' Yes the LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy." Psalm 126:2-3
