About A Boy…

His name will be Jackson…Jackson Cheng. The Cheng is part of his Chinese name, and it means “great journey.” Appropriate, don’t you think?

He is two years old, he and I share the same birth month, and he will celebrate his half birthday in February.

He is waiting for us in Hunan province, and we can’t wait to get there.

He is described as being charming, delightful, and chubby, with the cutest giggle…

He is also described as being strong-willed, busy, a bit naughty, but outgoing and happy.

I think his dimples are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…
(the woman pictured here with him is our caseworker from our agency. She is so wonderful, and I am so happy she was able to meet him, and share more personally with us)

He has been through so many transitions, even more than our little M, and still he is happy and smiling. I am anxious to get him home, where he belongs.

It won’t be long, little man! Your family is coming!

    Wow he is so beautiful! I love his round cheeks. Allen commented on how very happy he looks. And we love the name Jackson. We considered that for one of our boys but our closest friends are surnamed Jackson and Allen thought maybe it wasn't a great idea. We look forward to meeting him and are praising The Lord for all He has done. We pray for your safe journeys, may they come soon, and a smooth transition for all.Love,The Wachters

    Such a long road it has been for your family too. But, isn't it ever so wonderful, to look at these precious pictures of your little guy knowing that this is God's plan and FINALLY the moment has arrived and revealed. I remember looking at our kids referral pictures, thinking, He had it all so perfectly worked out but He sure kept it a secret for a l-O-N-G time, LOL. Congrats, soooo esp happy for you! Michelle
