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.

Scenes of Beijing
We had a very early morning. The thirteen hour time difference between Beijing and Chicago has proven challenging; however we have managed to take it on, and enjoyed an educational and cultural day of sightseeing this ancient city.
We had the opportunity to take a rickshaw ride to have tea with elderly Beijing citizen and hear stories about China.
George, Our CCAI guide took us along a historical trail as we walked through the Forbidden City all the way to the throne room of the Emperor.
We are trying to absorb as much as we can to capture memories and snapshots for our baby daughter. She is on our mind as our Gotcha Day draws near.
