Gotcha Day!

Lee Anne and Ed are having some trouble getting Internet access right now. I (Trina) will be updating everyone until they arrive in Shanghai and can regain access. Julianna is now with Ed and Lee Anne. They both have described her as a "little doll" and even more adorable than her picture. We'll be adding pictures to this post as soon as Lee Anne can send them.

Julianna is already sleeping in her crib through the night in the hotel room. She lets Lee Anne feed her and give her a bottle, and she loves to be held by Ed. It seems she is already well on her way to being a "Daddy's girl." So far, they have only had one major issue with her-- bathtime! She hates it!

Lee Anne and Ed both ask for continued prayer in the attachment process. Julianna also needs our prayers as she continues to experience so many changes and sees so many new things in the days to come. Finally, pray for Lee Anne and Ed to have continued strength (emotionally and physically) as they continue on this journey.


  1. Praise God! He is so good all the time! We are so very happy for you all! Love and Blessings, Lee Ann, Chuck and Holden
    PS - Holden can't wait to see your pictures - he keeps asking me if they are on line yet. He is so funny!

  2. Oh!!!
    I can't wait to see your pictures. I wish you and your baby girl Julianna (Wan Zhan)are very happy.
    Warm greetings from Spain

  3. We are so thrilled that you've got little Julianna, I just wanna cry tears of happiness! I'm trying to keep Skype open while I'm home at night in case you can use it. We love y'all and can't wait to meet her at the airport! ~ Joy (and the rest of the Hetler crew)
