Meet Our Newest Son!

 
I am a bit stunned and COMPLETELY thrilled!  We have a proposal!  Meet Chen Wenlong, born May 8, 2011!
 
 



We are still trying to decide on an English name and will post it as soon as we're sure.  We have some ideas, but with 3 other kids thinking they must have input...well, let's just say, we'll let the name we want grow on them for a bit.  ;)
 
 
Chen Wenlong was born in Taiyuan, Shanxi.  It is a more northern province. 
 
According to our documents our newest gem is living in a foster family and has been since he was 5 months old.  Wenlong has a repaired (unilateral) cleft lip and palate. 
 
He likes foods with strong flavors, is beginning to talk, and his favorite toys are cars.
 



We expect to travel sometime in June.  I can hardly wait!!
 
NOW...
 
...it's time to get a room ready and do some shopping!  FUN! FUN! FUN!  :)
 
...And to pray some more. To pray that everything will fall into place.  It will be interesting to see everything come together...cause I know it will!  It always does!
