January 4- Miss Elizabeth Ann Upchurch...

Glory to God!!! We finally can see the sweet face of our daughter, Elizabeth Ann Upchurch!!! It is with MUCH thanks to the Lord that we share this with all of y'all!!
We received the call from our adoption agency at 11:52 am on January 4, 2007.
Her Chinese name is Yang Chun Hua Bing which means Brilliant Magnificent Soldier.
Elizabeth was born May 2, 2006, in Yangchun, China, which is in the Guangdong Province.
She weighed 15 pounds at her last check up in October and was 24 inches tall. They will be sending us updated information in the next few weeks which will include a more recent physical exam with more current weight.

Congratulations!!! She is unbelievably beautiful!!! Look at that little nose!!!!

She is perfect! Isn't it wonderful and strange all at the same time to finally see the manifestation of this incredible calling the Lord has trusted you with?! To think God chose her for you and you for her is an incredible miracle! I know all of Heaven rejoices knowing that an orphaned child is now an orphan no more!! One down, just 125 million to go!! What a mighty plan God must have for Elizabeth!
