YoaYoa - Lexi

Pin It
It has been a heart wrenching but God praising journey here in China. When we get back to the states we will post all about the road we traveled. In short I will say that little Hua was found to have severe brain damage and was taken to a facility where she could be properly treated and properly matched for her special needs. We have grieved and we have spent much time just crying and wondering what Gods plan was bringing us all the way to China but spending our time here with no child and many questions. In that time we have been able to share our love for Christ and we have fallen in love with so many people here in China.

Then, on Monday (China time) we were told that they indeed had our Lexi. Back to Hunan province we would travel since they had already sent us to Guangzhou after taking Hua. We threw a few things in a bag and left for Changsha Monday afternoon (China Time). We are told we will be picked up around 2pm to go and meet our daughter.

Her Chinese name is YoaYoa pronounced yowyow. She is only 10 months old and she is a bucket overflowing with cuteness!!! My heart skips a beat each time I look at her photo, I can only imagine what is going to happen when we see her face to face this afternoon.

Tina (my angel) has agreed to let me email her my posts so she can keep the blog updated. Thank you Tina!! And now, here she is! YoaYoa Baby Cakes!

What a difficult journey you have traveled thus far. I will continue praying for Hua's SN and that she can one day join a family of her own. What an emotional trip you have been on, and I just thank God for carrying you through.

I am so excited to learn more about YoaYoa... what a little HUNNY!! :) She is absolutely adorable and I am just grateful that you don't have to return home without your daughter. She was clearly the one God picked for you all along! We may not understand His ways, but we still have to trust in HIM!! <><

love and hugs,
