Some of you may know that Jacob's parents are in the process of adopting a little girl from China. Her name is Xiao Ai (which means Little Love), and she will be 4 in November. She is considered Special Needs by the CCAA due to a large Mongolian Spot (birthmark).
We received the wonderful news on Friday that their Travel Approval has been issued, and so they will soon be departing to bring her home! She is from the Henan province and has been in the wonderful foster care of Pam for the last year. Allen and Majaunta should be leaving the first part of August to pick her up... just waiting on a Consulate Appointment to know the exact date.
Please be praying for Allen and Majaunta as the prepare for their journey to bring Hannah Joy (her new name) home, and please be praying for our Little Love -- that God prepares her heart for the enormous transition before her.
And what would this post be without a picture... She's the one in the middle and is pictured with her foster sisters.
