Chelsea Faulker!

I wanted you to see the letter that Paul and Toni sent out. I love reading about adoptions and knowing how a child's life can be changed, a beautiful experience at the end of a really long wait. My hats off to the families who have such tenacity and determination to know that it is all worth it.

Hi everyone, We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our little girl, Chelsea Ann Haiqing Faulkner! We travelled to Gansu province (central China) last week to pick her up. After 2 days doing some amazing sight seeing, she was delivered to our hotel room on Wednesday – with shaved head and split pants! Chelsea is settling in well, and as Paul puts it, 'she sticks to Toni like a bug on a windscreen!'. Sam and Jackson were really excited to get their first cuddles from her today, hopefully Paul's will be very soon as well. We've attached some photos, and we can't believe it will be a week tomorrow that she's been part of our family.
Paul, Toni, Sam, Jackson, Christopher and Chelsea

Life, Love and Laughter,
