at 3:05PM EST today when our social worker called with this most magnificent news.

We have a daughter.

Name: Qi Xiao Bei
DOB: 28 March 2007
Location: Qichun SWI (in foster care), Hubei

We’ll get pictures tomorrow when we pick up her referral package.

I don’t have the words to tell you how happy we are. It’s an unspeakable joy.

    CONGRATS….we have a Qichun girl and you are in for a wonderful trip. We have been home for two years and our daughter came to us happy and healthy. All the Hubei children are in foster care and so your daughter is receiving excellent care as you await your travel. If you haven’t already, join the Qichu Yahoo group at and the Hubei one at

    Congratulations! I have a Qichun girl who will turn 5 on Nov. 24. Your referal for Ava looks a lot like her. Qichun has a fantastic foster care program. Please join the Qichun yahoo site as suggested by Laura.
