Looks like a Pierce to me!



We are so excited to announce the referral of our new son Gou Fa Ke..who we will rename Jaxin and call him Jax. The way this adoption has come to be is such a God thing! We are so excited about our new son. Our kids are beside themselves with excitement about their new little brother and Sophie's big brother. Jax is 6 years old. Sophie is so excited about getting a big brother from China. Jax is even from the same orphanage as Sophie. There are so many exciting details I can't wait to share!(coming soon). Our LOI was sent on July 28th and we received our PA today!! We are just beginning the paper pregnancy so we have a long road ahead of us! Please pray that all our paperwork will go quickly and smoothly and please remember little Jax in your prayers. We are praising God for our new son....more details to follow...
