Doing the happy dance! Another one of God's little peeps coming home to a loving family!

Amazing! Congratulations! Can't wait to hear all the details!
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! WOO HOO….Details, PLEASE! Can. not wait ot hear!!!

jessica ann says
NO WAY! NO WAY!!!
I am just thrilled for you and the entire family!!!
Teresa =) says
I'm so envious, I could spit.
Truly. I don't know how you do it…obviously just trusting that it will all work out as you keep adding to your family. We want to adopt again, have even started secretly saving money, but I can't even tell my parents about it!
You amaze me!
WOW! What wonderful news! I can't wait to hear MORE…Congrats to you and the WHOLE family!
The Stiffs says
Congrats! Exciting. I hope you have more than 3 words to share soon.
If you slow down just a teeny tiny bit, we might be in China together! I just got the I-797C letter yesterday. If I were in charge, I'd make up really nice, happy names for these forms. Maybe the "You're Almost There" form, which would be followed by the "Hip Hip Hooray" form.
So, Hip Hip Hooray to you!
Wow! Rejoicing with you and your family!!!
I just sent mine off yesterday! Can't wait for that envelope to come in the mail! I'll just point to your family of 11 when my extended family falls off their chairs at the thought of us having 7! Thx for deflecting the blow!
Nancy-of the crazy 8s
The Oswalds says
Oh My! Congratulations! So happy for all of you!
Amy Murphy says
OH! MY! WORD! How exciting!!! I pray that all goes smoothly for you! (I'm also VERY jealous of you and all the others I know who are in the process again!)
Team Gilbert says
Wow!! We want to do it too!!! I'm so excited for you and Chris! Please don't make us wait long. Us big Families need to stick together! Lovin it Sista!!! This has made my day! Congrats!!!
so glad the cat's out of the bag…can't wait to hear more!!
Congratulations!!! Can't wait to hear more!!! 🙂
I am so very happy for you! But, the single mommies need a chance to go back to China to adopt again too! This will be your third since we were there that summer – ahh – so not fair – but so very grateful that there are terrific families like yours to bring 'em home!
So, so exciting! Can't wait to see who God has selected for your family!
I had secretly hoped though that our timing would be a bit closer and that I'd finally get to meet you in GZ this time…
Oh my gosh, am DYING to hear more!!!
Cindy M says
Well, ten IS a nice round number.:-)
Cannot WAIT to hear more!
Awesome three words!!! Congratulations!
PLEAZZZZZZZZZZE tell us MORE!!!!!! Is it Olivia?????? I noticed her picture was taken off WACAP not too long ago! So thrilled for you and your family!!!!!!!!!
Wow..you are so insane 🙂 But, in a good way, of course! Congratulations!!!!!!!! What are your secrets because, honestly, six seems like a lot to us. You amaze and inspire me. Woohoo!!!!!!!!
I figured it was time again!!! =) I am so happy for you and I'm thinking two????
How absolutely wonderful!
And I hope you will be sharing more details very soon!
Wow, y'all are crazy! Going to start looking for a mini-bus? Lord bless you! LOL
Truly Blessed says
Wow. Congratulations (again)!
Two Kayaks says
Perhaps you have already done this in a recent post, but I would be curious to know how you foster attachment with your children when the adoptions seem to piggy back upon one another.
Why am I not surprised? (insert huge smile here!) So HAPPY for your family and your newest blessing! YIPPPPEEE!
3 Peanuts says
So exciting! Congratulations! I cannot wait to hear all of the deatils!!!!
I am so in awe of your ability to do all that you do. I would like to come spend a weekend at your house to learn. Your obedience to God's plan is beautiful and inspiring.
I will admit though…I kinda feel like a big fat loser when I feel like I have a lot on my plate! I mean really…you ROCK!
Congratulations, Stefanie and Fam!!!
Woohoo! Praise the Lord :-).
Details, woman, we need details!
What a joyful piece of news – I now have a smile on my face :-).
When you get a chance – tell us ALL about it :-).
Congrats!! I am little jealous too!!!!
Is this what happens when you start putting kids on the school bus and you have time scheme?!!!! Sheri
Mrs. S. says
How awesome! Ten! I do think you are AMAZING!!! I come home from teaching exhausted…and you just keep moving…like Kim wrote above, I think I will take a week off and come to your home to observe how you do it all…Congratulations…you guys really rock!! Even my Kate is sitting here going, "How come they are going to have another little one? All I want is a sister from China like me!" Feeling like a poopy head!!
I thought nine was a wrong number to be done with…..
I don't know you, but I have been reading your blog ever since I discovered it. I saw this post today and was so happy!!! I just came back to check and see if you had posted more info and when I saw you hadn't, I decided I might as well leave a comment to Congratulate you!!

Ro, Ro, sa, ta, and so says
I stopped dead in my tracks…tears streaming down my face and everything. Congratulations! I can't wait to follow your new adventure. 🙂
Wow, how exciting. I can't wait to hear more. We recently received our LSC/LOA and can not wait. I looked back at your hotel reviews, and it helps a lot, thank you. Can you possibly give me (or everyone if you wish) some tips on the gifts we need to bring? How many do we need, and what to bring? I am so confused about this.
Three words… Praise the Lord, and OH MY GOSH!!!!
I just love your hearts Stef & Chris!! And, I can't wait to find out who this lucky child is!!! WOW WOW WOW!!!!!

Thinking, thinking….1800A or 1800? Hmmmm…I think the I800 approval came in a brown flat envelope…UNfolded…so does this mean ALMOST DTC?!!?!!?
May the Lord go before you. He has already chosen your next blessing 🙂
