FINALLY - LOA!!!!

Yay!!!!  Yay!!!!!!  Yay!!!!  
It has arrived!!  Thank you Lord!!!  I feel like I can breath again!!!!



So excited to FINALLY be able to introduce our precious, beautiful daughter - Meisi Zhen Simpson :) 

This is one of my favorite pictures of her we found on the Love Without Boundaries facebook page. Just wanna reach out and squeeze her.  Can you see why this wait has been so so hard!?!
 
 
These were her referral pictures we received.  We knew she was ours immediately. :)  Looking into her eyes...wow....  we love you sweet baby girl.
On August 22nd, 2012 Ding Si Zhen was born in our hearts. :)

 
We sent our Letter of Intent for her 2 days later.  We kept praying about what to name our precious daughter.  In her referral paperwork it said this regarding her Chinese name Si Zhen:
 
"Si means thought, because we want her to grow to have good thoughts and good morals.  Zhen means treasure, because we think she is a treasure." 
 
We knew we didn't want to change that, too precious.  Ian (our 5 y/o son) kept saying we should name her "Beauty" because she is such a beauty.  We agree, but you can't really name a child "Beauty" (unless you are Disney). :)  
 
We wanted to make sure we kept her heritage in her name (just as Aili and Ian are named for our Scottish heritage).  Her identifier with LWB is "Delyth"  which means "pretty" in Welsh.  We learned that "Mei" means "beautiful" in Chinese.....Perfect!!!  After much praying and talking, we decided her name is Meisi Zhen - beautiful thought and treasure. :)  Ian says he is still gonna call her "beauty or cutie."  I think we all will. ;)
 
One more picture...hehe...been waiting too long to share these. :)  How surprised I was to get this from some friends who found it on Pinterest....Beauty, eyes and her heart all in the same sentence....our beautiful heart baby with amazing eyes...  We LOVE you!!   Gotcha Day can't get here soon enough!
