Troy and I had been thinking of switching to the Waiting Child Program for several months and after lots of prayer, turned in our paperwork in the beginning of June. I had an incredible feeling of peace after that and knew our child would come to us in a year or so. We got the email June 16th that CCAI received our Medical Checklist, but said there were 200 other families ahead of us. On Tuesday June 24th, we got THE CALL! Talk about extreme shock. I was fixing turkey tacos and thought this was another call just to check in and see how we are doing which they have done before. This time, Pam said, "I have a little boy who needs a mommy!" We had only been waiting 8 days! We saw his pictures and read all about him and KNEW he was our son! You see, CCAI received his file June 18th which is my birthday. In addition, his name means God/Heavens Timing. Troy has always joked that he would like a son to play golf with like Tiger Woods and come to find out, Mu means "wood". We also said our first son's name would be Ty. Tian and Ty are not too far apart. We see God's hand in all of this and feel truly blessed. We hope to bring Ty home in August or September.

We are so excited we can finally post pictures and information about our new son! Meet Mu Shi Tian soon to be Ty Jameson MuShi Roenfanz! He was born May 1, 2007 and currently lives in the Henan province. Ty has a cleft palate and repaired cleft lip. We cannot wait to bring him home and kiss that chubby little face!
