Where is Jadyn?

She lives in the City of Yangzhou in the Province of Jiangsu if you would like to learn more about her birth place click here-

My sister, Kim and I will be staying the first week in her province we will get Jadyn on the 2nd. or 3rd. day and complete the Chinese side the adoption the next day, the remaining part of the week we wait for her passport. Then the 3 of us will fly to Guangzhou for another week as we wait for her Visa into the USA.

We were able to send Jadyn her first care package yesterday, our agency keeps it very limited. We sent her a ladybug cloth book, a little cuddle blanket, a disposable camera for the Nanny's to capture pictures of her and her friends. They will return the camera to me once I get there. Most importantly we sent her a photo album introducing us to her as Daddy, Mommy, 2 big brothers and Lucas the dog.

A brand new picture of JADYN

We are so in LOVE!!
Isn't she just adorable! This photo was just sent to us tonight by another Yangzhou adoptive family, it was taken a couple weeks ago. She looks so happy and healthy.
Thank you Kelli

Meet Jadyn

We have been given clearance to share information about our daughter, so without further anticipation...Here she is!
Our little angel's Chinese name is Yang Jun Qi
Yang is her last name, it is given to all children at the Yangzhou orphanage, her first name is Jun (pronounced Chen) her middle name is Qi (pronounced Kee) We will name her Jadyn Brooke, we would like to add one of her Chinese names to her American name, we just have not decided on it yet. She is currently 26 months old and weighs around 21 pounds.

We have a DAUGHTER!

Ames and I are excited to announce....We have accepted the referral of a beautiful 25 month old little girl. After 3 plus years of waiting, it has finally happened!

Our daughter lives in Yangzhou City, in the province of Jiangsu, we have read that this is a beautiful part of China.

Jadyn currently has a complicated but correctable heart murmur. We have consulted 2 pediatric cardiologists from Portland and Spokane, both have assured us that her condition is quite common and correctable. She will enjoy a normal healthy life. We will let our Doctor decide, once home, when to proceed with her surgery, though we would like to have it done as soon as possible.

My sister, Kim and I will travel to pick Jadyn up late July to early August. I would love to post her picture for you all to see, but I have to wait for our agency to give me the OK first. I assure you she is just adorable with plump, kissable cheeks! At her last check-up she was 21 pounds and 30" tall.
