Leah Kristine

We are excited to finally be able to introduce Leah Kristine!!! After a long journey that started three years ago we finally have a name and picture for our daughter.

January 5th 2009, we got a phone call from our adoption agency with a referral - and Hui Chengying became part of our family! We received our LOA January 22nd 2009, and are now anxiously waiting for our TA so we can start planning our trip to China.

Leah was found when she was about 1 month old and taken to an orphanage in the Guangdong Province. She is now 3 years old. We cannot wait to bring her home to our family!


  1. I love your blog, and looking forward to
    meeting our new little granddaughter.

  2. Velkommen til familen vår Leah! Jeg gleder meg til å bli kjent med deg!

  3. Spennende at det er familieforøkelse på gang. Kina er et flot land med gammel kulturhistorie. Mommo og bestefar var i Kina høsten 2007 og har lært litt om ditt fødeland. Vi gleder oss og følger med deg på veien til din nye familie. Velkommen.

  4. Congratulations! Yout growing family is in my Heart and prayers. Awesome.

  5. Gratulerer Anne Marie & Jeff!For ei nydelig lita jente!Dere går jammen ei spennende tid i møte!! Ber om at dere snart må få treffe henne og ta henne med hjem..... Klem fra Thor Inge og Anne

  6. Hi Anne Marie,

    I just got your comment on my blog. What a cutie your little girl is. We will be staying in Guangzhou the entire trip - maybe we will see you there. I think we will be at the Victory. We have three other children as well. Thanks for getting in touch. It is always nice to connect with people who are in the same boat - COME ON TA!!!!
