After examining our paperwork more closely and poking around on the internet, I discovered that one bit of information I posted was not quite correct, so I made a correction to the previous post "First Impressions." Initially, I wrote that Lily is waiting for us in Nanchang, Jiangxi province. Our caseworker told us that we would be receiving her in Nanchang, the capital of the province, so I just assumed that's where Lily is. Actually, she is at an orphanage in Ningdu (which is actually considered a county), about a 4-hour drive south of Nanchang, still in the same province.

If you'd like to see it on a map, here are two links. Click here to see a simple map. Click here to see a more detailed one (you will have to zoom in once to see where Ningdu is...look for the words "CHINA" in red letters in the center, and Ningdu is not far below).

Congratulations on the good news! If you haven't seen it already, you should go to and check out google earth. I found Nanchang, but couldn't find Ningdu.

Oh Wow, I am so happy for you and Julie! This is so incredible.

BTW...please, if you can manage it, get back before draft day....(okay, just joking) can always leave your picks with Julie....

Lily is just beautiful....Congratulations and God's blessings on your upcoming journeys (both the one to China and the one as parents)
