Ok dear friends, we cannot be more delighted about introducing our new daughter: Michaela Tsai-Ann Bush!! Yes, you can scream a big YAY with us!!! What a difficult last 19 months it's been! But how worth the wait was. Everything is beautiful in God's time. It certainly is. We are so in love with our new little sweet pea, that we don't think about the long wait anymore. Here are the links to our previous updates for those of you who are new to our journey: Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
|Our Bush girl! =)|
Isn't she supercute?!! The best compliment we got was from a friend who said: "Eekkkk, but of course! She just looks like a Bush; who else could have she been matched with?!!"
|Mommy I think can hear your kisses all the way here! =)|
As many of you know we received our child referral back in early January, and have ever since working really diligently in getting all the paperwork in order to be able to travel to China in about two months to meet her and bring her home!
|This is when I was 18 months old..awhh!|
Michaela Tsai-Ann is currently 27 months (11 days younger than our youngest son at home) and was found abandoned at a park in the city of Kaifeng when she was 1 month old. She has been living in the Kaifeng City Social Welfare Institute ever since.
|I love riding my little red ox! =)|
She currently has some developmental delays probably due to negligent care after a premature birth. She has done great progress at the orphanage though, and the care and love she has received while in the orphanage has been a great response to prayer. However, she will probably need continued therapy once we bring her home.
|Mommy, I can't wait until you are the one holding me!..I'm grateful for my loving nannies though..|
Once more God has super exceeded our expectations and has pleased our hearts in orchestrating this match. We are also very grateful for all the support we have received from friends and family as we go through this journey. We can't wait to be able to introduce her personally to you really soon.
|Yes, I'm ready to let my brothers take a ride too! =)|
