Updated Picture!

A dear lady from the online adoption "community" traveled recently to adopt a four year old little girl from Gabriella's orphanage. She was able to get a couple of pictures of our little girl while they were there! Here's my favorite....

I love how many "nannies" are pictured in the background. This wasn't a scheduled visit, and they weren't expecting the picture, so it is comforting to know there's people down at the babies' level, playing with them and holding them.

What's in a NAME?

Our dearest girl finally has a name. An American name, that is. China named her Wei Chun Yi, Wei being her last name, Chun her first, and Yi her middle.

You would think that after THREE boys, we'd have a girl's name, no problem. Nope. Took us quite a while to come up with this one. In the end, Brent chose her name. I loved it immediately! It fit all of my "requirements" LOL----feminine, good meaning, Hebrew, ending in an "a", and able to be shortened to two syllables. Our other four children's names are Hebrew, and we wanted our newest girl to share that with her siblings.

Anyway, I'll quit rambling and just share the name:

Gabriella Mei Bergey

Isn't it lovely? She's got a bunch of nicknames already---Gabbey, Gabbey Mei, and Mei Mei....

"Gabriella" means "God is my strength" and we know this will prove true for our little fighter. She's already overcome so much, and we know without a shadow of a doubt that God has been leading us to her, preparing us for her, for a long time.

Momma loves you, Gabriella Mei!
