Never expecting in a million years to jump on my notebook, check my emails, and see "this" from our agency labeled, "Dang Zi Zhong"! Here are two photos that we received dated yesterday! We also received some current measurements...he is currently 29" tall and weighs 22 lbs (he is currently 6 lbs less than Annabelle and 4" shorter) and has 16 teeth (along with some other information). This is EXACTLY what WE NEEDED to keep us going. Today truly turned out to be one beautiful day!

He is so PRECIOUS!!! I just want to reach out and pinch those cheeks:)

This news could not have arrived at a better time.....I know you have been a little down lately. I would hope this smiling little face perked you right up and restored your faith. You may have to overcome a couple of obstacles to get your little man home, but there is nothing that is going to stop you!!

I couldn't be happier for you:)

I want to kiss him!! I love how the staff strategically placed toys in front of him for the pictures! He looks so tiny without all that bulk of the blue sweater :)

Love that little boy!! Hang in there Benjamin James! I love that his surname is the same as Mya's (& Annabelle's right?) Wasn't her name Dang something?? I dont know - the whole same province thing has me thrown for a loop - I love it! I want another "go" at Zhengzhou (I'm a poet!!)

Love you!!!!!!!!!
