Ladybugs and Liana

Ladybugs are sort of a good luck symbol in Chinese adoption.  This morning, I opened up the blinds in our family room upstairs and there was a perfect little ladybug just sitting there on the blinds.  The first ladybug I've seen all year!  I have to admit, I got a little excited.  I'm not superstitious or anything but I do think that if God wants to use a ladybug to encourage you, He can use a ladybug. 

Well, we're still in translation so nothing there yet.  However, WE GOT AN UPDATE WITH THREE NEW PICS!!!!  We have been waiting on this update for 8 1/2 weeks so it's been a long time coming.  We got only good news about our girl, which is such a relief!  We were also told in it that the caregivers love her.  In all 5 pictures that we now have of our girl, she is smiling and just looks so happy so I believe it!  This is such an answer to prayer!  So without further ado...here she is...again!

Could she be any more precious?!

And maybe a little bit mischievous? :-)


  1. Congrats on finally getting an update!!!!!The pics are SO adorable!! What a sweet, smiley little girl! Such an encouragement to hear how she's doing, and see for yourselves too. She really does look like a happy little tyke! Yeah, the one where she's getting her shoe put back on looks a bit mischieveous alright! :) She'll fit right in with the rest of you!!!

  2. Also the pic of Ella and the ladybug was precious! That is such a keeper!

  3. We're counting the days until we get to buy plane tickets! Can't wait to meet your beautiful new daughter. It looks like she's smiling at her new family!
