Call us Momma and Papa!

We got "the call" this morning at 9:20 am. We are officially parents of a little girl!! Her name is Jin Xiao Pan (Jin is her last name) and she was born on February 7, 2006. Right now she is at the Guiping Social Welfare Institute in Guangxi. The only other thing we know right now is that on July 30 she weighed 14.8 lbs, was 24.8 inches tall, and had a head and chest circumference of 16.9 inches. She will soon be named Esther Xiao Pan Blakefield.
Tomorrow we will receive her picture! I can't wait to see her! Our adoption coordinator says that her hair is standing straight up with "bed head," which is fitting because her mommy(as I type this) has bed head too! She already takes after me.
If you want to check out some pictures of Guangxi province, here is a link: http://www.travelchinaguide.com/picture/guangxi/index.htm. It's beautiful! And we get to go there in December (fingers crossed).
Well, that's all I can tell you for now, but check back tomorrow and you can see her little face!
