Paloma

This sweet little face you see right here, is what I have been staring at for weeks. This is our new daughter, waiting for us in China. Her name will be Paloma. Her referral completes our family. We are so thrilled and humbled to have her be a part of our family. We cannot wait until we are able to travel next year to China to bring her home. We have a separate blog( Paloma Lucy) set up to document our journey to Paloma. So, in case some of you did not know, this is why I am smiling these days.

Oh, you are so blessed, indeed. Isn't she gorgeous!?! Paloma is the perfect name - dove, right? I always think of that song, "Una Paloma Blanca".
You must be beside yourself with excitement.

Oh, she's a cutie!! Being of Chinese descent myself, I would like to thank you for adopting this precious little one! I always think...what if my parents / grandparents didn't move away from China? Would they have given me up for adoption (or worse) if I had been born because of the 1-child policy? I'll never know...but to have so many little girls waiting for a family in China...is so heartbreaking! So, thank you, thank you, thank you, Yoli. For giving Paloma a chance to have a family!! She is a lucky one!

Annie Coe said...

HELLO do you get any more beautiful than your daughter.

I love her, she is just a doll. I love her name too.

Now, no doubt next year cannot come fast enough.

Love Renee xoxo
