A new picture & Our Daughter's name

Look at that adorable face

Guess who that is in the orange sweater? Yep, it's Jadyn. This photo was taken by a family that was visiting the orphanage in late March. It's hard to tell she weighs only 21 pounds with all those clothes on.
We have many days behind us now trying to decide what to name our daughter. We want to incorporate her Chinese name along with the names we fell in love with over 2 years ago. Its been a struggle to get a combination that flows.
Her Chinese name is her heritage, and we feel it is very important that she keep part of that as her new legal name. For those of you that know us personally, you know our last name is long...4 syllables long, so we don't feel good about giving her 2 middle names for a total of 4 names.
We have decided to name our daughter.....Jadyn Qi.
(Qi is pronounced Kee)
Yes, this is final as we have already submitted it to our agency for her visa and passport!
Travel update: Our agency is now saying it looks like mid-July! We have also found out that Kim & I will be traveling with 10 other families. We won't meet up with them until our second week in China unless they are adopting from Jiangsu Province as well.
