The M SIX

Yep.  Six.

Meet the newest addition.


Preliminary approval just came today.  There are a lot of you that we wanted to call first.  And while we thought we'd be able to sit on the news for a few days until we reached everyone, we simply couldn't.  We just wanted to shout it from the rooftops.

We're totally smitten!

Our trio here can't stop talking about him.  Actually, Ian and I can't either.

And I can't wait to tell you the God story of him becoming a part of our family.  It really is AMAZING!

But tonight there is a flurry of paperwork to get done.  We have until December 28 to get our dossier on a desk in Beijing.

Lindy said...

What a beautiful little boy! Can't wait to hear more about him and what the children have to say.

Do you mind if I suggest some names? How about Christian as a combination of both his parents' names (Kristi-Ian.) Or how about honoring your husband with another version of Ian, which by the way has the beautiful meaning of "God's Grace." Variant forms of Ian include John, Sean, Shawn, Evan, Zane or Shane. Or what about a name containing "Ian" such as Adrian, Julian, or Davian? Just some fun ideas.

Dawn said...

HE IS BEAUTIFUL!!! Yeah, God and I can not wait to hear this story!

Your sure know how to knock the socks off people. I almost fell off my chair. I have been so impressed with the raising of these 3 so close in age and now ANOTHER one? God must really love and trust you guys. And Laurie is right, he is so "stinkin cute". Can't wait to hear the story. Can I come take care of the three when you go to China? :) Congrats.
