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.

In our inbox today we received our pre-approval. I am not 100% sure what this means, but in general terms it brings us one step closer to our little girl. Also, we now have the address for her and can send her a care package. At that moment, we as a family will be introduced to our daughter by her caregivers. We will send a photo and it is suggested we send clothes and toys. We can send no larger than a shoebox so we will make these selections carefully. You can be sure there will be plenty of pink packed in this tiny box. When the box is received the caregivers will begin to introduce to our daughter her new family. I will be labeling, in Chinese, the photo such that she will see her sister, brothers and of course, mama and baba, mommy and daddy. This project, the paperwork and prayer fills our days until she is ours.
