She looks perfect for your family! I was worried that you would be upset about her age and am so thrilled that you are happy! You all are going to be so great for her. She looks like such a happy, cheerful precious daughter and will be great addition to that fantastic bunch of family members that are already yours!
Congratulations and God bless you all!

I LOVE that huge smile! I can feel her personality it that picture. She is SO cute. I keep wanting to call her "peanut". Isn't 35 lbs little for her age? I'm not really sure only kiddo around this house is my 2 year old niece. She weighs 27 lbs. I couldn't think of a better way the start the year!

Congratulations! She is adorable! I will be following your journey home.

Congrats on your little lady! I was so surprised that my "baby" was 3.5 yrs. old, but she has been the delight of my life! (no diapers!) She was ready for fun from the get-go!

Leah looks like she will be a bundle of fun!

Leah is adorable and she is just going to love having all those siblings. Best of luck!

Keri said...

I am so happy for you! Our daughter was from Guizhou and it is such an interesting area. If you have any questions about the area, please feel free to e-mail me. There are really not a lot of referrals from this province.


bb said...

Wow what a cutie pie!! I know you can't wait to have your fisrt big hug from her! Congrats!

Mike and Barb said...

Love the happy grin! I hope the rest of your adoption process goes quickly, and you can bring Leah home!
Just wanted to let you know that you have two different Birth years on the blog (2003 and 2005).
We brought home our 3 1/2 y/o daughter this summer (today is our 6 month anniversary since adoption day), so please feel free to visit our blog to see how her transition went (Great!).
All the very, very best to your family, and congrats again!

Susan said...

Congratulations! She has a great grin.

Congratulations on your referral. When you are ready to obtain her finding ad (which has a great picture a few months younger than her referral photo!) come visit us at

All the best for a quick trip!


Caroline said...

Congratulations on your referral!!! Your daughter looks so happy in the picture (and cute!!). Best of luck to you on your journey!

Gail said...

Your daughter is adorable.
What a great smile!!
Wishing you a safe and memorable journey to her.

Cherith said...

Aw she is a cutie pie!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!

Carol and Bill said...

Leah, Leah, Leah. We all want to meet you.

King clan:
What little impish expressions she has! She is going to fit so well with her family. You guys are all such a fun and happy and positive group. I truly think CCAA DOES know what they're doing. Leah is your daughter and sister.

A Friend said...

Congratulations, she's beautiful! Consider making your blog password-protected as posting photos, birthdates, travel dates, and other identifying info on our kids is never a good idea. Lots of creeps out there, don't mean to sound negative just something to think about. Best of luck.

Courtney said...

Congrats! She's adorable!!!

Debz said...

What a cutie! Congrats, and all the best for 2008.

Heather said...

Congratulations! We are a fellow CHI family. We brought our son home from China in August at 4 years old. The transition has been easy and he is doing great. You have lots of fun ahead of you!! Wishing you all the best as you become a family.
