On March 16th 2009 we were given Pre-approval to adopt Zhang Yi Ran. Yi Ran was 18 mos. at the time, and her birthday is Sept. 21, 2007. She is in the Xinyang Children's Welfare Institute in the province of Henan, China. We have named her Kelly and will keep her Chinese name for a middle name. For those of you who are in the adoption world, our stats are these:
For those of you who don't have any idea of what all those numbers mean, I will give you the answer to the most important question most people have: when will we get her? Hopefully, if all goes well, we will travel somewhere in late June to early July. We hope to be in China for about 10 days, and all four of us will travel to get her. We probably won't know our actual travel dates till late May or later. It all depends on the Chinese government and how fast, or slow, they process our infomation. So we will try to be patient and work on finishing her room and a few other projects before we travel!
