Our only update is that we have opened our criteria to include a young boy in addition to a young girl. We had previously expressed preference for a girl, merely because we were concerned for the plight of girls and envisioned a girl when we started the process. Historically, the majority of children adopted from China have been girls. However, in recent months and years, this trend is shifting dramatically and there is a significant need for boys to be welcomed into loving homes. Because we don't feel strongly called to a specific gender, we feel like broadening our criteria puts more control in God's hands. Ultimately, we just want the precious little one God has planned for our family.
Please continue to pray for our little one waiting across the world for us, for his/her caretakers, his/her birth mother and father, and for us.
