There have been a few days during this adoption process where I can do nothing except fall to my knees and thank the lord. Today was one of those days.

I received an email from a volunteer who works at Miya's orphanage.


double wow.

Let me back up, I recently discovered (thanks to joining her orphanage yahoo group) that her orphanage is sponsored by an international ministry group, Hope Haven International, which I believe is part of the Caring for China program. Another mom on the yahoo group is still in contact with one of the Hope Haven volunteers who works at Miya's orphanage. She sent me this gal's email address, I emailed the nice lady, and today I received a response!!!!!!!!!

Here is a summary of her email:

She knows who Miya is and they (I am assuming nannies and other volunteers) were excited to hear that Miya has a mother!!!

Unfortunately, she couldn't tell me much about Miya as they aren't allowed to discuss the children prior to the adoption being final (government rules), but she did say that the English speaking volunteers had given her an English name.

Guess what it is.........are you's Sarah!!!!!!

She assured me that Miya is fine and is well cared for by her nannies and the volunteers.


I responded and thanked her and thanked her again. I also asked her to confirm if all was well in the area after the earthquake, hopefully she will email me again.


I wonder if they will tell Miya her mommy is coming soon....

sleep tight little lady, I'm coming.....

That is so amazing! I am glad you have peace of mind now. God is so Good and he matched you with the perfect baby! It gives me goose bumps just thinking about it all, especially having the same names.
