It's a Girl!

Yeah! Tuesday morning we were blessed to receive in my inbox the referral of a very cute, just turned 3-year old girl from China.  I wish that I could post pictures of her here for all of you to see.  Gosh, it's hard to believe that we will soon be parents to four children - when we go get her they will be 12, 11 and 9 - and she will be 3 1/2!

The little girl who we pray will become our daughter (we are sending a letter of intent to adopt her to China tomorrow)  has big eyes and is smiling in almost every picture we have of her.  We are very grateful to already have 7 different pictures of her.  She does have a special need listed, it is called hypoevolutism.  Most doctors here in the states have never heard of it before so we will have her completely checked out when we get her home.  It was also noted in her file that she has low hemoglobin, which could be that she has some type of anemia.  Whatever her needs are, it doesn't really matter. We will do our best to care for her and love her unconditionally as one of our own.  (She looks like she will add a lot of giggles and laughter to our lives.) 

So when do we travel to go get her? It could be December - but we are hoping for much sooner than that!

Praising God for this wonderful gift,

The Burgess Family
