Le Petit Oiseau is french for Little Bird. We are calling our precious little china doll Little Bird as we wait for our voyage to China to get her. This is our journey from meeting our Petit Oiseau on December 13, 2011 via referral through holding her in our arms and seeing the Lord's hand as we become a family of six. Many who read this blog have prayed for this journey and for that we are eternally grateful.

Translation "South of the River"
Henan Province is the most populous province in China thanks to separating Chongqing from Sichuan. Henan is the breadbasket of China. It ranks first in the production of wheat, beef, and fiber crops. It ranks second in the production of coal, cigarettes, fertilizer, tractors, peanuts, sesame, gold, and cotton. It ranks third in the production of beans, tobacco, apples, pork, mutton, and honey. Zhengzhou, the capital, is the most important rail center in China. Henan has China's largest reserves of molybdenum, asbestos, natural gas, bauxite, coal, perlite and refractory clay. We lived in Xinzheng just south of Zhengzhou for a year.
