Introducing Our Daughter ...

It is with great joy and thanksgiving that we introduce you to our daughter.  

Gan An Na was born on October 20, 2011 she is just 7 months old. 
She is waiting for us at the Jianxin Social Welfare Institute in the Jiangxi Province

We have named her Ellie An Na.

We stand in awe of God's perfect plan for our family. We have watched the evidence of his hand every step of this journey. He has orchestrated every step of this process in such an amazing way that we sit back and give him all the glory! God is good! 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
Ephesians 3:20

When our feet hit the ground we will share more about our little girl and how clearly we have seen his hand at work.

This is Tami Fite, I introduced myself in the Gap a while back. We know your parents from YATEC. Just thought I would check in and what an awesome update to read! In The Message in Psalm 128:6 it says, "Stand in awe of God's Yes!" God gave us that verse after we found out we were pregnant this second time around. And yes, we had a beautiful baby girl on Monday the 21st. I thought the verse was very fitting for all that God has done with your adoptions and your family. Blessings to you Julie and to everyone in your family.
In His Grace,
Tami Fite

Congratulations on your Jianxin referral! We were just in Jianxin last year, and have a lot of information on the orphanage, etc. We also have your daughter's newspaper finding ad, which has a great photo of her months younger than her referral photos.

Come by and we can go into more details.

All the best!
