Jailynn and her cake we sent her!

Pretty Jailynn!!!
What a wonderful and exciting email to get this morning. I woke up to find updated pictures and info on our sweet little Jailynn!! We sent her the cake on November 6th and requested photos of her. I am so happy that we got them. She looks healthy and adorable! I can't wait to hold her in my arms. Jordyn is so happy and excited to see her new pictures. We are still waiting for our LOA and then our travel approval. I think we will most likely travel in late January or early Febuary. Please pray that it will be soon and that God will continue to provide the money we need for the orphanage fee and travel expenses. We are trusting God that He will provide because we know these two sweet girls belong together. Here are the updates on Jailynn's stats:
We have obtained You Yu’s current measurements from the orphanage. (cm=centimeters, kg=kilograms)
Height: 112 cmWeight: 16.4 kg Head circumference: 48.5 cmChest circumference: 51 cmLength of foot: 18 cmNumber of teeth: 10 upper teeth, and 10 lower teeth
She is so tiny! She only weighs 36 lbs and she is 3ft 9in tall. We just absolutely can't wait to bring Jailynn home!

I am so happy for you! The pictures are amazing! She is so beautiful! I can't get over how big she looks, but by her measurements, she is so tiny!

Your story inspires us to follow our hearts and go back for another daughter...even though it seems others would think we were crazy!

I knew from the start that Jailynn was meant to be yours! It was definitely a "God thing" in finding her...and then getting her!

Love ya

Oh Melanie,
Those pictures are priceless. I can't believe Fung Fung is in them with her too, now I can stare at them all day.

You are truly doing something amazing, I"m soooooo glad we got in touch. The girls are smiling and I'm sure feeling all that love you sent in the cake.

My GuestBook

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!

We have our LOA!!
