Gotcha Day!!!!
















We arrived in Shanxi Province at about 10 am. At 2:30 we left to go me our baby girl. She is doing wonderful. No crying, just all smiles. We are off to finalize paperwork, so I will write more later. Just wanted to share a couple picture.

Oh, I've been watching each day for these such pictures! How exciting to see her in your arms and especially to see such a happy little girl. I am so glad it hasn't been a hard transition thus far!

The pictures are great! She looks like she's doing fine, sitting with her mommy and napping with daddy.We can't wait to see pictures of her with her two big brothers. Please come home soon, we miss you. We're praying for you and your safe trip home.

All I can say is YAY!!!!!

Also, I have been told to tell you to bring on home Chinese silk so that a quilt can be made for Hannah!

I am glad it is going well so far!

Love, Jennifer

She's Beautiful! I've viewed every one of your wonderful pictures through tears, happy tears, remembering an October day, 22 years ago when we held our baby Phillip for the first time. Please know that Gene and I truly share your feelings, probably every one of them, and are praying for your family. What a wonderful time for you all. Adoption is so, so special for we know that "In love (God) predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ..." Ephesians 1:5

She is so cute! I'm glad to see she is adapting well. Reese wasn't sure about us for a day or two. During daylight she was okay with, but once night came all h*ll broke loose.

Good luck! And she is adorable. I hope you can get another adapter.
