We have a BIG announcement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Schlenner family has a very special announcement to make......are you sitting down?????????

Gabriella, Jocelyn & Ahnya would like to let all our family and friends know that..........WE'RE ADOPTING ANOTHER BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and IT'S ANOTHER baby GIRL! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(I told you to sit down!)

We are adopting a baby girl from China and we all couldn't be happier!!! The girls are thrilled!!!! Now we wait for a referral to be matched with this spring or summer. Then travel this fall/winter 2011. This process is going to go more quickly because we are open to some minor/correctable medical issues.
We surprised our family and close friends by presenting them with a chinese take out box filled with chinese goodies...AND of course a fortune cookie that said "SURPRISE...IT'S A GIRL!" It was so much fun sharing the news with our family and besties! To see everyones reactions and to feel their enthusiasm and support was priceless. The feeling is still exillerating the forth time around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ryan and I started the adoption process back in September 2010! We are using the same adoption agency and the paperwork is completely done! We just wait for the "the call" and news that we have a referral! Let the fun begin!!!'s a Girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations Schlenner family!
Morgan told me this morning that Jocelyn was going to have a baby, so I just had to come check the blog to see what she was talking about. We are beyond excited for all of you:)!
