I have been reading your blog for years. My niece adopted from China and brought Abby home last January. When my niece started blogging I got hooked on some of the blogs she followed.

Your daughter is beautiful! I felt so bad this morning that you would have to wait until next week. You all have had enough waiting.

Thank you for sharing your ups and downs and this very special high. I hope you saved that last pink link for her baby book.

Congratulations.

Tracy,
Your daughter is oh so beautiful. Wow! I can only try to imagine what you and your family are feeling right now:) I found your blog on RQ and it looks like you are in Olathe, KS. Is that right? My husband and I are also, maybe we could meet and our daughters might play. We will have to wait a little for their precious faces to see each other. We are LID 4/21/06 but hopefully it will be in 2009. I would love to meet you and I hope you blog while you travel. I'll be watching.

Your daughter is absolutely lovely! If your wait hadn't been as long as it was she wouldn't have been your daughter. When you hold her and watch her grow, you'll be so greatful that it took exactly as long as it was supposed to for this child to be yours. I'm so very happy for you!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

Karen said...

I am so happy for you. I have been lurking for a long time now and was sooooo disappointed when I read your post on Thursday. I was thinking how upset you must have been to have to go through another few days without knowing. I did not log on to the blog on Friday as I was sure there was no news, I was soooooo surprised to see this beautiful little girl when I logged on today. CONGRATULATIONS to your whole family. "W" now has his "sisdar". She is beautiful and I am sure she is well worth the wait. The DOB is amazing....almost like she was meant to belong to your family.

Karen in Canada

PS I can still hook you up with Fudgee-O if ya need them, but I am sure you have all the "sweets" you need now.

Tracee said...

Your sweet baby girl is so precious...I know you were relieved. The wait has been so long! Makes the 16 months we waited for Lilly back in 01-02 seem like a cakewalk. I love love love her name! You will stay busy in the coming weeks and hopefully your TA and Consulate Appt. won't take too long. We only had to wait not quite 4 weeks to travel, but I understand it is longer now? The CCAA has gotten so fickle. Let's just GET IT DONE already!!

Congrats again and enjoy your new mommy high this weekend!!

Robin said...

Had to stop back by to look at your daughter again. Have you guys noticed how much she looks like your family? Really, she looks a lot like her Mama and her bothers too. I'll bet your shopping aren't you? Ha! Isn't it wonderful to shop now for a baby that you know rather than just a dream. Happiness to you all. I'll bet they call her Ling Ling. She is just adorable.
Best wishes for a speedy travel.

Ninona said...

Dear Family
Firs of all, Congratulations for your new daughter HU Wan-Ling.
Let me introduce myself. Our name is Adopchina (www.adopchina.org) and we are a Spanish ONG that helps many orphanages in China.
Your daughter lives in Shangrao orphanage (Jiangxi) and this is one of our most protected orphanages.
Many Spanish families have sponsored children in this orphanage, and your daughter is one of them.
We have photos and maybe short videos of her stay in Shangrao, and if you want, for us would be a pleasure, send you everything we have about your daughter.
We were with her in September 2008 and February 2009
Congratulations, again
I would like you to know how much their caretakers love in this orphanage the children .
Its director, the person who will deliver your daughter to you is the best person in the world.
We know that this month they have been assigned several girls from Shangrao to USA, so all families referred in Shangrao Ling, if they want, can write us in Adopchina and we'll give them all information we have, photos and videos of their daughters.
We wish you happiness.

Emerson's Grana said...

She's adorable. For the first time I can say I have 4 wonderful grandsons and 1 beautiful granddaughter. You & J have so much love to offer a baby and the boys will be so blessed to know how to love and protect a sister. You may have some rocky days ahead, but you two are GREAT parents and support each other so well. I'm proud to call you my daughter and J my son-in-law and equally proud to be Grana to your 4great kids. I have only one regret and that's your Dad will never know Eme Grace. Wish I lived closer and could be there to celebrate and help when needed.

Love you all and welcome Emerson Grace to the family.

Only one thing left. Now,

GO GET HER AND BRING HER HOME!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Emerson Grace is absolutely gorgeous, adorable, cute, stunning and so much more!!! Congrats friend!!!

PS - Sorry it took so long to respond. Was out of town but a friend at work was texting faithfully with updates and I gasped out loud in the car as your beautiful baby girl's picture came across the screen of my telephone. Gotta love modern technology! It allowed me to shout for joy for you even while driving down the highway!!

Congrats to your entire family!!!
