5.5 Years Paper-Pregnant...and finally in LABOR!

My friend Christel is currently in China getting her TWO ( read that correctly) 2 girls! She and I originally found each other because we shared the same LID and then found out we lived near each other. Her girls are just precious. She also has two adorable boys adopted from Kazakhstan.

KimberLei Anne - 3
Hengyang, Hunan, China

Maria Noelle - 1
Tianjin, China

We were able to get together before Halloween so that I could give her several bags of Josie's gently used clothing. Her girls are coming from two different provinces and they are traveling via train through China. I'm having major adoption envy...sigh.

They had gotcha day yesterday for Maria. Isn't she a little sweetie?

You can follow their blog here.
Prayers and blessings, Christel.
I'm so happy for your family!
