We received our phone call at 12:00 p.m today. Our referral was e-mailed shortly after, but I could not open it until 4:30 p.m. when I was at home with Les. It was so hard not to look!

Our daughter's Chinese name is Cen Si Hui and her birthdate is January 28, 2008. We are sooo happy and relieved that our turn has finally come. We don't have a second name for her yet. I'll post again later when I have a chance!


  1. She is so cute and her name suits her cute little face!!!

  2. I'm so excited for you guys--after all the waiting and heartache the moment is finally here. I can't wait to meet her.

    Congratuatlations. We adopted our daughter Cen Li An from Heng Feng in Jianxgi Oct. 2007. She was one and is now a beautiful, loveable two and a half year old. Good luck on your trip. It's a very exciting time. Looking forward to following your blog and keeping in touch with a fellow Heng Feng sister...Meri -

  4. I am guessing from the seat she is in she is from our daughter Lucy's orphanage Hengfeng. CONGRATS on your referral, and welcome to the family!!!!!
    Hugs, Jill mom to Lucy aka Cen Li Kun

  5. I am so happy for you guys and so excited to welcome Maya into our big loving family. auntie B

  7. Lori & Les:

    Congratulations, we are so happy for you and Maya (Cen Si)!

    We cannot think of two people who deserve the happiness they are finally getting more than you two. It has been a long hard road, but you never gave up, and your determination is being paid off with an incredibly beautiful little girl!

    We can't wait to meet Maya!

    Carmen, Terry, Courtney, & Cassidy

    p.s. I know you won't want to leave her alone for quite a while, but when you do, Courtney and Cassidy are fighting over who gets to babysit! ;-)

  8. Well, she is beautiful!
    I am so glad to see more referrals this month! Do you have any idea when you will travel? It looks as though we are going for Stella in a month- amazing!!

  9. We were told today that we would travel in six-eight weeks. Can't wait!!! I feel overwhelmed right now!
