Pediatrician Approval

I just returned from Dr. Lockhart's office where she looked over the medical report on Ling-Wei. She said she appears to be very healthy. It seems that she has had excellent medical care too. I also took Chia-Ho's medical for the pediatrician to look over. He will have some testing done when he comes home to clear some things up as to his health. There is not much to go on for him. So.....we will e-mail our case worker and accept the referral for our Son Chia-Ho & daughter Ling-Wei.
That is so cool to be able to say that!!

Referral papers received

YEAH!!! We received Ling-Wei's paperwork today. She appears to be a healthy little girl! She weighs 35lbs. and is just shy of 3' tall. She came to Cathwel in April from foster care where she had been since birth. We got some background info on her birthmother and her birth grandparents. I have an appointment with our pediatrician May 27th so she can look over the medical reports.

We also got word from Penny at Cathwel that if we were interested in adopting both Chia-Ho and Ling-Wei, they will let us. Chia-Ho's medical and social history are being faxed over to us tomorrow for review also.

IT'S A GIRL!!!!!

We received a call today, May 23rd from our agency to let us know that we have been matched! This is what we know so far: She is 2.5 years old and her name is Ling-Wei. What a sweet name! She came to Cathwel the end of April 2005. We should be receiving her medical and social history reports within in a day or two. No pictures yet! Those will come after we have our pediatrician review her medical reports and accept her referral officially.

OH .........BOY!!!!!!!

Thanks to our very special kind & sweet friends, Frank & Kim Farley......... looks like we may be adding another one to our evergrowing family!!! Frank & Kim just returned from Taiwan with their newest additions Hannah, Josiah & Caleb from Cathwel. Welcome Home!! Along with their new additions, they came back armed with photos of a little boy named Chia-Ho who also needs a home. They are on a mission! Nathan (one of Frank and Kims sons) and Chia-Ho were in an orphanage together in Taiwan so Nathan is excited about the possibility of him coming to the US. Mark saw the pictures of Chia-Ho and told Frank he was open to the idea of making him a part of our family. Well, that's all it took. Frank contacted Cathwel to find out if they would consider us to be his family and we have been on the phone with our agency to find out if Chia-Ho is actually available for adoption and what needs to take place. Now we wait to see what happens. We will keep you posted.
