9/7 – Adoption Day! (Happy B-day to me!!!)

Posted On: Tuesday, September 7th, 2010 at 5:27 pm

IT’S A GIRL!!!  Today was the adoption day and it’s official.  We have another daughter–a sweet, beautiful, funny, silly, smiley, happy daughter!  We went back to the registration building (where we received her yesterday) to finalize the adoption and make it official.  Yesterday we signed a guardianship agreement, giving us 24 hours to decide if we really wanted to keep this child.  Of course we do!  But I have to tell you, she made the decision pretty easy. 🙂

I have so much more to say, but I am SOOO tired!  It’s only 8:30pm, but I’m falling asleep as I type this.  Hopefully I can make up for it by posting pictures. 🙂  I just want everyone to know that things are going extremely well thus far.  Tomorrow is a free day–no adoption appointments–so we’ll be visiting the Shaolin Temple.  And Thursday we’re going to try to visit the orphanage!  Yea!!

(Oops…fell asleep in the chair last night while waiting for the picture to upload.)
