Mei Mei for us!

We are thrilled to introduce you to our new

We have chosen the name Jemma, and are still undecided on a middle name.
Jemma currently lives in foster care in Liuzhou, Guangxi China.
She will be 3 in October.
She has the same special need as Jia.

We received our PA for Jemma on May 16th.
Tomorrow is our final visit with our social worker and then it will take her 3-4 weeks to get our homestudy all wrote up.
We have a few other documents to gather and then we will submit our Dossier to China.
It's been a long time since we've done this and I haven't been staying up to date on all the timelines.  I do know there are some extra steps this time around we didn't have to do with Jia.
I refuse to obsess over RQ and just take it one day at a time this go-around!  I feel much more relaxed and able to trust God's timing and provision.  However, I am freaking out a tiny bit about having a 3 year old again!  (she will be 3 before we get her home) 

I love this picture that shows off her chubbiness!  And Jack already has her pegged for being a Tomboy since she's wearing overalls!  Time to pack up all the dresses!
The kids are all excited and ready to have her home!
Momma is to!  :)

Oh my goodness!!!!! Congratulations!! I am so excited!! Gemma is beautiful and she is a bit chunky, isn't she?? :) Don't pack up those dresses yet, our Hua Hua was always wearing boys clothes in her pics, but when we got her, she was the girliest girl! Jia must be excited and I know you are too!!
