Happy Birthday, Rachel Guanglan

Today is Rachel Guanglan's birthday. We sent her a card a few weeks ago and hope it made it to Xi'An in time for her 3rd birthday. The card and a brief letter were written in Chinese characters, with updated photos of the three of us, and Lillian drew a picture of herself and Rachel.

About the shortest wait I've seen documented recently between DTC and LOA (the next step in the process) was about two months. Some people are waiting more than 100 days. We are on day 43, if my math is right. We are hoping and praying for as short a wait as possible -- Lillian's sister has now turned 3, and she needs to come home soon!
