It's a Girl!!
Jim and I are proud to announce we have a daughter.

Her name is Liang Xiao Sheng. We plan on calling her Sera XiaoSheng. It was going to be Sera Elizabeth XiaoSheng, but we dropped that idea as soon as we saw what letter her name started with. She's from the Liangping SWI in the Sichuan Province, and she was born on April 17, 2006.

We hope to travel in April and have her in our arms before her first birthday. We won't have pictures until next week, but we've been assured she's beautiful. I never doubted that.

These are all the details we know now. Off to make more phone calls and to celebrate.

Life is wonderful!

UPDATE: We will receive more information and photos on Monday.

Congratulations!!! What a wonderful, happy time this is for you & your family.

Hi there..

I just wanted to say Congratulations on your referral!! And I love the name you've picked.. it happens to be MY name as well! I've never met anyone else who's spelled their name like I do. I used to want it spelled like all the other "Sarah's" but as I've gotten older, I've really appreciated the uniqueness of it!

Can't wait to see pictures of your Sera. I have two little sisters adopted from China. Esther is 4 and came home in March 2006 from Guangdong Province. Emma will be 4 on Valentines Day and we adopted her from Beijing in August 2004!

Take Care!
