Courtney!
I have intended to leave you a note before now- stumbled upon your Blog a month ago and have loved checking in and reading your musings, articles, hopes and discoveries. I am thrilled to tell you we received our referral today and our sweet Bo Meng, born 6-29-07, is currently living in Elyza's orphanage. They could be buddies!!! Isn't this amazing?
Look forward to reading more about your journey- perhaps we will be in Jiangxi at the same time!
