Meet our daughter...Lily Ruth-Yuan

Oh, that smile! It melts my heart!




Lily is 3 years old and her special need is "limb difference". As you can see in the photo, she is missing her left hand. Lily is God's gift to us and we think she is just perfect! We are counting the days until we can hold her in our arms and love her forever. We are hoping to travel in February of 2009, which is not to far away! We received our LOA on December 29, 2008 and are currently awaiting travel approval.

This is not our family blog which is password protected. This is our special travel blog that will be open to the public. We would love for you to follow our journey and we covet all your prayers for our family.

We are continuing to add pieces to Lily's 100 good wishes quilt. If you have not contributed, we would love for you too! Her quilt blog link is added to the sidebar.

Thanks so much for linking me to this blog! I have to email the other one, because when I go on with the info you gave me I am signed on as you and I cannot comment. I have wanted to leave you so many messages! Your girl is stunning and beautiful, as is the story of all of your children! I love the pink poodle and brown and pink top. I wish we were close and could shop before the trip. No TA yet, but we had our travel call and they said January 28th or Feb 4th. Can you believe it??? I really hope we can meet in China!

I didn't remember that she was missing her hand. You can't even tell! You'll be amazed at what she can do!
