A bit more updated information

It has been over 2 weeks now since we were assigned Song Ziyin. There has been no visible progress in the processing, although we are told things are happening and they are expediting as they promised. Note to self...not in control...

We have heard about her current health status, however! On Tuesday, I requested an updated health check, as our most recent data is from 4 months ago. Because of our September experience with Meilynn, it seemed like it might be reassuring to have them check on her. She is just fine! Good to know. They will not complete her cleft lip surgery in China, so that will be scheduled shortly after we come home.

We have been talking consistantly about names around here, and one night, Marcus had an idea. He said, "Why don't we call her Sophia?" Dave and I looked at each other in surprise and said, "maybe we will! We like that one." When asked where he heard that name or what made him suggest it, he said with a shrugg, "I just like it." Sophia means wisdom (very nice) and our other favorite is Elliana which is a Hebrew name that means God answers (also very nice). We are still open to suggestions, but those are our current front-runners.
