Happy 8 month birthday to our Jaili girl

Today is Jaili's 8 month birthday and we also received 2 new pictures of her today. Shane and I are so in love! I just stare at her picture and cannot wait to get her. She is just so amazing to me! What a beauty also. Hey, if she can pull of the shaved head look you know she is going to be pretty darn adorable no matter what she does. We are still waiting for TA. We are currently at 40 days for "the wait". I talked with our social worker today (Kathie, who is awesome) and she said that several families with letters of intent that went in June received travel approval this week, so who knows maybe next month for us? I'm not betting on it but it would be pretty cool if that was the case. It's all in God's timing and his timing is perfect. I just rest in that fact. Anywho, at least we know that we will have her by the end of the year!

Where Jaili was born

I found a little information on the city that Jaili's orphanage is in. It sounds beautiful. I'm hoping we will be able to visit her orphanage when we will be there but it is hard to say right now. Here is the info:
Yangxi County is located in Yangjiang which is an uprising city by the South China Sea.Yangjiang City is located in the subtropical zone, about 150 miles southwest from Guangzhou, and is surrounded by mountains from three sides and facing the sea to the south.Moyang River, the mother river originating from the great cloudy and misty mountains, has an overall length of 200 kilometers, and has developed the fertile land of Yangjiang .
