Introducing Anna

Anna Yinhuan Allen
Introducing Anna Yinhuan Allen, our daughter. We call her Yin Yin.  For the past seven months she's pretty much all that I've thought about, even though until a few weeks ago I didn't even know her.  It's quite an amazing story of God's love for us and how He helps  everything work out for those who love Him. When things seem scary and uncertain He brings exactly the right people at exactly the right time and brings a peace that is completely unlike anything else.  I am so thankful that I have a relationship with the Creator of all people.  He created Yin Yin and He knew that she would be a part of our family.  Her life hasn't been an easy one, and there may be many challenges ahead.  What I do know is that she is my daughter and that God will give our family everything we need to give her all the love and care she needs.  We love her very much and can't imagine our lives without her.


  1. She is absolutely beautiful! So excited for you all!

  2. I found your blog through Pam as our daughter is also at Swallow's Nest. I saw your little girl's photo on Swallow's Nest's website and have been so taken with her. If our HS agency would have allowed two, I think your little girl would have been it :). I am so glad that she is going to be a part of your family and am so happy for you all. If you get a chance to visit Swallow's Nest and see our little Dang, Cai Tong, I would love pics, info, anything. We will be praying for you guys! Rachel
