It is with joy and thankfulness that we introduce our new daughter, Yong Feng Tian. Yong Feng is her surname, because she is from the town of Yong Feng in the Jiangxi province in China. Tian means “sweet.” We have decided to keep Tian (pronounced tee EN) because we love its meaning, we think she’s most certainly precious, and we’re now so used to calling her that, it would seem strange to change her name. She just celebrated her 2nd birthday on August 5 (we celebrated quietly by going out to Chinese for lunch, and shopping for some things we’ll need for our trip to her.) We are now just awaiting Travel Approval (TA) and then a couple of days after that we’ll receive our Consulate Appointment (CA). Right now, our agency is hoping to get TA back quickly, and have us flying out on August 30th. It can’t come soon enough!
Tian is 7 months old in the first photo. I can’t get her other two 7 month old photos to load right (they’re either too big for the screen or way too tiny.) We finally received an update on Tian, and the next two photos are when she was 23 months. Isn’t she just the cutest little thing? I can’t wait to kiss those cheeks!
