Orlando or Bust!

We are preparing to drive to Orlando to meet our daughter. On paper :)

CCAI will begin making calls sometime after 10:00 Mountain Time which translates to sometime after noon for us. As soon as we have emailed family with Alyzabeth's photo and vital statistics we will rush to post them here. To our "other" family...
Those of you who have walked this journey with us since its beginnings in 2005. Thank you. Bless you.

It may be late tonight BUT you will see Alyzabeth!!!
peace

I am crying right here at work. I am so excited for you guys. I cannot wait to hear all about this very special child.

Funny, we have never really "met" but, we share a closeness for adopting, our babies and this horrible wait.

I pray this meeting today is everything you ever hoped for and more!

Okay, so my Mandarin is rusty... (and yes, I already gazed at your beautiful little one and left a comment -- congrats again)... but this mystery (to me) character is driving me CRAZY!! What is the first character listed here? I know the second is fu/father and the third is mu/mother. But WHAT is the first character?
