Adiah Hope Woods!!!!!

I can hardly believe that I am writing this post! On Friday, October 5th at 1:18 pm we got a call from our adoption agency, America World. On the line was Amy Pearson our rocking family coordinator! She told us that she had some information for us about a little girl and asked if we would like to review her information. Of course, we said yes!!! I'm sure I'll write more later but here is what I know about her at this time.


Her name is Xi Meng Liang (soon to be Adiah Hope Woods- we may add another name in there too. To be determined...)

DOB is July 25, 2006- 14 months old

She currently resides in the Social Welfare Institute of Dingyuan County in the Anhui province in China.

Special Need-paper work says developmental delay

She is absolutely beautiful! So cute and chubby! I'm not allowed to post pictures at this time but as soon as I can I will!! Maybe you could email me and I'll send you a picture!


I'm just praising the Lord that Brian and I (and the kids) were all home together when the call came. We got the entire thing on video!! We would truly appreciate your prayers during this crazy time! Thanks and I'll give more information when I can think straight!!!

"Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west." Isaiah 43:5

Poppa and Mommy Holly are SO excited! Can't wait to hear all the details!

Since when is it Poppa and not PaPa?

M Holly said...

Since Amy's kids started calling him Poppa. I think your kids call him PaPa.

WOOO HOOOO!!!!! Sara told me you were hoping for Friday, and we said MANY prayers that the call would come through. So glad to see that it did! What an amazing thing to have the whole family there too. That will be a forever memory for your family. We will continue in prayer for you, that you will be united with Adiah SOON!! I can't wait to see those cute chubby cheeks. :) CONGRATULATIONS!!

I got goose bumps reading about that! Can you imagine the feeling that she will get in the future when she watches the video and sees how excited you were to hear about her? To know that you were wanted that much; what an amazing feeling. Congratulations and keep us posted!
