My Own Darling Daughter's Referral Announcement

Inspiration: Finally seeing our daughter's beautiful face! Hannah's Chinese name "Fu" is a nickname for lotus flower. The photo of the flower on her announcement was taken on a recent trip to Longwood Gardens with my sister Jennifer. The color of her name and the background match her nursery.

We're in love!

Congratulations!!! She is BEAUTIFUL! I hope your travel approval comes soon!

She wouldn't happen to be from JiangXi Province would she? My oldest daughter (now 11) was a "Fu" (From FuZhou Social Welfare Institute in LinChuan of JiangXi Province....all the babies from her area were assigned "Fu" for their family name.) Just curious if your child might be coming from the same area.

Oh...just realized I could enlarge the photo of your announcement! "Fu" is her given name, not her "family" name. My confusion!

She is beautiful. I imagine you will be spending time in NanChang when you travel to bring her home. We really enjoyed NanChang when we were there...not that you NOTICE much of the city when you have your precious daughter in your arms!

Best of Luck!

Actually, she is from Fengcheng city in the Jiangxi province, and I believe we will be staying in Nanchang. How cool is that!

I was very surprised to see this website. I was on line looking for my families website and came across you. My first thought was when did my daughter get this site and why didn't she tell me?. Then I saw your picture and was in shocked to see you and my daughter share the same name. The difference is my Ashley is African American. Congradulations on your daughter
