I’m Gonna Be a Mommy!

That’s right! We have accepted the referral of a little girl! In China! Can you believe it?!

Her name is going to be Mackenzie An-Feng Billigmeier. An-Feng is her Chinese name, and we just like Mackenzie. We will post pictures when we are allowed to. It may be a while, as China has rules about when you can put pictures of a child on the internet. Just trust me, she is a cutie!
I will give you details soon!
