ChunBin knows she has a family!

I had sent an email to Delphine, the head of ChunBin's foster home, Bethel (link on sidebar) This is the reply I received today (editing out extraneous bits)

Hi Heather

I told Chunbin today ... Chun Bin was silent but also joyful as usual, laughing, joking about my Chinese a little. I am telling you, you will have a realllllllll sweetheart, you will bless God every day for her, she is (and I am not telling you that to make you happy but really because it's the pure truth) she is a pure sunshine. ...

Also for her name I will ask her Monday because tomorrow am not going to Bethel


I am really hoping she likes the name Calliandra. I do have a few others I like if she doesn't like that, but I just think it's a beautiful name. I'm hoping to be able to start thinking of her as something other than Little Miss soon. Although, judging by the number of times we call Acer 'Little Man' she may still go by Little Miss.

Oh how wonderful that she knows you are coming! I think she will love the name....I think it is beautiful!!
Have a wonderful day! Tell Acer we are glad his Guangguang is home! I don't know what we would do if Cat had to spend the night away from home!

I bet the clock seems like it can not move fast enough now the she knows she has a family!

If she choses to keep her Chinese name would that be okay? Calliandre is a pretty name but may be difficult for her to pronounce. Good thing you have backups.

It is simply amazing that you have had this communication with your daughter (albiet by a third party). I can hardly wait for you to bring her home! Hugs, Manette & Family

I'm so excited for you to bring your sunshine home! It is wonderful that you are able to get so much information. I hope it helps to make the wait a little easier. Best wishes!

Okay, so I just realized that Chunbin is YOUR LITTLE GIRL!!! She is amazing in the video and very OUTGOING and daring!!!!!!! I love watching her on the rock climbing wall! she looks likes a genius!!! How old is she? Do you know anything about the girls that the forum talked about? Are either of them in the choir pics on your blog? Sorry for all of the questions... ;-)
