We have a son from China!!!!

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but never break."

Name: Xiao Zhi Qing soon to be Ethan Frederick Zhiqinq

Born: 7/6/05 -- 19 months old ~ just under 3 months younger than his Jie Jie, Katie Starr ~
Virtual Twins!

XiaJiang SWI, Jiangxi, PRC

Special Need: VSD Repaired

Agency: Hawaii International Child

He is described as excited when seeing delicious food (love that), lovely, fond of toys, often laughs, active, restless, likes to watch TV and is close to his caretaker. We think he is a beautiful child.

The Red Thread took quite some time to untangle and our loving and supportive friend Mary Rodin was the person who completely untangled it for our family. Thank you Mary!!


I will save the story of of how all of this came about for our next post.

We are ecstatic and cannot wait to bring him home forever!!
