For unto us a Child is Given!

With this baby we are blessed!

Guan Yun Zhu
Born: August 20th, 2005
in Yunan Province - Kunming CWI- Foster Care

She weighed 22 lbs in October! (okay to all those who know their dentistry! :-) Our Family coordinator said she see's two teeth shining on the bottom - that's probably not all the teeth she has!) We will have pictures and more information to share tomorrow!

God is so good. We are overjoyed. Thank you for your prayers as you've journeys thus far with us. We covet your continued presence.

Hi - just saw your blog on the Rumor Queen site. Just wondering - did you mean your daughter's birthdate was Aug. 2006? You wrote 2005 and that would make her 1.5 years old which would seem wierd that she only had 2 teeth. Just curious. Congrats!!

Congratulations. We also have a Guan baby from Kunming. The Kunming Yahoo group is a wonderful place for information about your baby's CWI. Enjoy your trip to the city of eternal spring!

I saw your referral on Rumor Queen. Our daughter Kylie is from the Yunnan province. All the children there have the last name Guan (which looks like their first name, as they have the last name first). This is because the orphanage is located in the Guandu district. My daughter's name was Guan Hua Ying. You'll love Kunming. The weather there is fabulous all year round, very lush and green. If you have any questions about Kunming, email me at
