The Best Things Come to Those Who Wait!!

Marc and Lori Weinstock along with their son Justin Ortega announce with great pride and joy the referral of our daughter, Katie Starr Weinstock

Chinese Name: Wu Hong Shan
DOB: 4/13/05
Presently residing at Wuwei Social Welfare Institute in Gansu Province, China.

At 7 months old she weighed 17.17 lbs and was 31 inches tall (tall and thin like her daddy)
She is healthy.

We do not have a photo or further info as yet; due to the fact that The DHL package was lost between China and our adoption agency. It has been a tough 3 days since we found that bit of info out.

Happy Happy Day!
I already sent email congrats but was just popping by today to see if there's a picture yet (I know, I know, I'm being too impatient and it's not supposed to come until Friday... sigh.) Oh well, until then, I'll just have to say Congratulations Again!!!!!!! I bet your house was one big joy party yesterday. :-)
