“Like cold water to a thirsty soul is good news from a distant land.” Proverbs 25:25
When we first started the adoption process, China referrals were only taking 6 months. By the time we received ours, we had waited 19 months! When the call came three years ago today, we were overjoyed. An email followed with pictures and more information. This is the first photo we saw of her.
We knew in an instant she was meant to be our daughter.
WHAT WE WERE TOLD ABOUT JACLYN:
Kong, Ci Song was born on July 27, 2005 and was found on July 27, 2006 by the water fountain in front of an eyewear store
in Guiyang City. She had a little blanket with her. After police investigated and could not find her parents she was taken to
the Guiyang Children's Welfare Institution. She was examined by a doctor who found her to be healthy. She was then placed in a foster home. Her name “Ci” means gentle, “Song” means to praise.
The foster family took special care of her and observed a normal growth. She could walk without help at 13 months and she has a big appetite. She loves to take a bath and her personality is outgoing and active. She often laughs and enjoys playing with other kids. She also likes to listen to music and watch cartoons. She has tons of energy. She likes to play outside, and go shopping. Her favorite game is hide and seek. She loves dolls.
These are the earliest photos we have of her.
We wonder about her first year of life. That's something we will never know.
Our little girl today! We can't imagine our family without her. We believe God planned for her to be a part of our family before she was even born.
