One Step Closer!!!!

We got our LSC today!!!! It took only 13 days from our PA to get our LSC! I think this is some kind of record? It took such a short time to get it! I've been told it could be 6-12 weeks to get the LSC. Now you ask what is the LSC? Well it stands for Letter Seeking Conformation...this means that this is our "Official" referral!! Evan is ours!!! Now to wait for Travel Approval "TA". Our agency seems to think we will get to travel the first week of November. October is out, because of the Fall Festival they have. I can't remember exactly what they call it, but everything shuts down for this event. September families already have their travel info. so we won't be able to travel then.

Okay, let me share some things about him. He is a 2 1/2 year old doll named Rao Su Xin soon to be Evan Michael Suxin !!! His birthday is September 27th, 2006. He is from Xinzhou, Shangrao SWI, Jiangxi of Jiangxi Province. He is in Foster Care; so he may have a hard time leaving them. He is not far from Shanghai. So, we are hoping to travel to Shanghai this time instead of Beijing.

(Red Thread Connections)
His birthday month is one month from Holly's exactly, one red thread.
He looks like Wendy,second red thread! I found him the day after my birthday on a shared list, third red thread. I had gotten my Ladybbug tattoo the day before I found him, fourth red thread.
The day after we locked his file Mike came home and told me that it just dawned on him that Evan's birthday landed on the anniversary of his daddy's death, FIFTH red thread!! This little man has lots of connections to us! It must be Gods way of saying he is ours.

He is a Special Needs baby. He was born with heart issues, but has been surgically repaired. The Doctors in Shanghai have said he won't need further surgeries. We are thrilled about this news. We will still be having him seen by a Heart Specialist here. The most fantastic news is that he is being cared for by a group called Love Without Boundaries. They raise funds to get help for all of the babies they care for to help with their surgeries. It is ran by people from the states with the help and care of nannies from China. They have lots of wonderful photos of him and have passed them to us and have kept up with all of his information so we know more about him than we did about Wendy. I will be adding their link to my sidebar soon. It is a wonderful cause to donate to because so many babies benefit from these funds.

I think you are tired of me rambling and are wanting to see photos.

These were given to me the day after we locked his file.

We have several other photos, but can't seem to get them to copy, but when I do you will be seeing these as well.

Okay, here are 3 NEW UPDATED PHOTOS!!!!! Just a little while ago! One is of him and his little friend there in the SWI, the second is of him looking for cookies in someones The third is of him and his Nanny. Mike noticed that they have painted his toes and fingers pink,red, and maybe lavender. LOL
