Today is National Adoption Day.
Gabriella is being re-adopted.
While we were in China picking up Gabriella, we had the very pleasant surprise that Gabriella was left at the gates of her SWI with a note attached: her birth mama had given her a name and also recorded her date of birth.
So, today, we are officially adding ANOTHER name to her already beautiful name. I am not mentioning this name because this is ONE of the links we have to identifying her family sometime in the future.
Thank you Jesus for this special gift.
Oh, and one other thing. Today Gabriella got her VERY FIRST (AND ONLY) Happy Meal from McDonalds... and, only because it was free. Her next Happy Meal she can get when she is 16.
While we celebrate with Gabriella today, there are two more princesses waiting for us in China.

And, possibly identified (Nov. 25th) Annabella (but God will have to show Himself REALLY BIG if we get this little one). Her story is just beginning, but God is leading... SweetPrincessAnnabella.blogspot.com
