Jennifer is a hard name to work with!! Because you have Abigail-Dawn my preference would be to use Jennifer first with a one-syllable second name e.g.: Jennifer-Mae
Jennifer-Kate (pure) or spelt Cate/Cait
Jennifer-Jane (God is gracious)
Jennifer-Blythe (free-spirit, happy, carefree)
If they don't like any here is a list of one syllable girl names:
I just saw the update... Jennifer Lin is lovely!

I suggest that if they really wanted the girls to feel like they "fit in" with their new family, they change the names of all the children already in the home to Chinese names. Otherwise it's not actually about their adoptive daughters at all, is it?Simon, Eloise/Louise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Conrad, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Dashiell, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Archer, Gabriel, Persephone, Raphael, Dov
Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...

It is NOT a term of endearment, Mei Mei (妹妹) MEANS younger sister. Sorry but I feel the need to correct that since I am "proficient" in Chinese (I'm half Chinese, but don't consider myself fluent since I didn't learn till I was older). So for them to call her that isn't really correct. Only the older sister can call her mei mei. Sorry again, but this bugs me a bit since it's incorrect use of a language and something I feel the family should know if they are adopting from another country....
