I'm really enjoying all of your guesses...

so keep them coming :)

Some of you guys are getting extremely close. It's actually almost scary how close some people are getting.

Anonymous, I couldn't believe that you remembered the little girl I fell in love with in China! Sadly, although she is at an *amazing* home, the children are not often made paper ready due to concerns with the government. It's so very sad, as I would do anything to bring her home.

Maybe this can confirm some ideas...

Remember when I posted this about a month ago? I was indirectly hinting to something...

And remember this that I posted on Mom and Dad's 25th anniversary? There's something in the background of the picture that was strategically placed there. Of course, no one noticed, because no one knew to look for anything. Look again! hint: enlarge the picture

emily, you are awesome and sneaky with these clues! did you ever see the reality show the "Mole"? You would have made an awesome mole!

Jean said...

Okay- I saw her picture! There is another girl coming home! I am guessing 9-12 yrs old? I love her smile! How wonderful!! We want to hear the whole story!

I love how the Lord leads you!

I really cannot understand how you can keep secret so well! I just can't do it! BTW we are probably adopting boys next! See- I can't keep a secret!

Okay, I am back in the guessing game...... you are adopting another child, an older girl, I saw her picture too on the tree. I cannot believe that you have kept this a secret for so long.... if this is what you are doing, which I hope you are!! You must have been beside yourself wanting to share all this time!!

Right Miss Emily..... you really need to share because it is keeping me awake at night!!! :) :)

Dawn said...

Its an older girl...GRACE!!!
Spill the details, girl!!

So happy for you and your family. I am hoping and praying all works out for us to continue with our adoption this year.

Happy New Year!

God is good.

Naomi said...

Okay I am checking in again to see if you have told us yet!!! Don't forget I am five hours ahead of the East Coast here in England and feel like its been a long day of waiting already!!! LOL!!!

Laurie said...

Beautiful little girl in between your parents!! :) I thought maybe the number of roses represented the number of children your parents were eventually going to have! :) THEN I saw the picture in between them! :) Isn't it "funny" how many people think their first adoption will be their only adoption? It's pretty rare, I think. Adoption is just a beautiful thing! :)

chicknboy said...

oh my goodness! you are so sneaky with the perfectly placed ornament. :)

you are good at this clue thing...I should have you help me!!

The Greens said...

Oh so happy for you!! Our Graci was nine when we adopted her, and is now 11 and so precious! We too were working on two adoptions at one time.

Older child adoption is a wonderful rollercoaster! (:

Can't wait to hear all the details!

I just recently started reading your blog and I knew right away it had to be that there was to be another child. The picture of an older girl--Sooo exciting!

Emily said...

very exciting to see how this unfolds!!!! Followed you since you got AC's referral so i've watched your family grow and grow!!

Global Girl said...

Ok, I'm agreeing on the Grace bit. I'm adding that she's between 8-10, and from Beijing. Close?

I'm so excited for y'all!

Staci said...

Ohhh, hints are awesome!! Amazing strategic placing of the pic! That's awesome! :)
