Witness the amazing facts and hopes for girls growing up in poverty. The creator of this video has an adopted daughter from China.
What will our daughters do to change the world?

We do not believe that today will be the last lap in our race to Alyzabeth An...
This is not a sad time for us. Rather, this is an exciting time! One filled with memories and hopes and dreams of things to come.

We have Imagined Alyzabeth An for some time now. Soon, very soon, what we once could only Imagine will be replaced by a new and beautiful heart for our family to nurture and love.
Many are waiting for you Alyzabeth.
And we give thanks knowing The Wait is nearing its end...
peace
Aly & Ford

Oh how I wish today would be your final lap but it may be a caution lap and you may need to circle for just a bit more before winning the race. Your attitude is a GREAT one and we're all learning from you. Looking forward to celebrating with you SOON!!

PS - wonderful video! Thanks for sharing.

Still keeping everything crossed for you that your referral will arrive sooner rather than later. Hang in there! She's coming soon!

Ford and Alyson,

I think maybe you were right about the 12th, I think the referrals will trickle into agencies on Monday and we will receive our big calls on Tuesday. This wait will be over soon, then we will be waiting for TA's and CA's. I Can't wait to hear something in the next few days. ( something, I'll take anything)!!
