Meet our Daughter..It does not get any cuter than this! I have no words to give this day justice. I will cry like a baby if I try to put words on it anyhow, and I am too exhausted. We now have the 4 best kids in the entire world!! I have spent the last several months very hesitant about being excited about this adoption process. There is no hesitation left. We have our daughter, She is so precious! This day has been the dream that I have been to scared to dream. Mina was pretty upset when we first met, which I completely expected. It was heartbreaking to watch her hurting, and not be able to fix her pain. She stopped crying when we got into the van to come back to the hotel. She seems like a real busy body and is very curious to everything going on around her. We came back to the hotel and she started to come out of her shell a bit, she loves all the toys we brought and is very attached to a stuffed "prayer bunny" that I had sent her months ago in a care package. (I need to get a few more of them as soon as we are back in the states). It is about 70 degrees outside and this girl had on about 5 layers of clothes. Amazingly by dinner time she was loving the people and beginning to smile and laugh with us. And boy can this girl eat. Our first meal together and she ate rice, bone soup with turnips, broccoli, spicy beef & asparagus, So much for picky eaters. She will definitely fit in well with our crew. She is a tiny little thing, I am shocked. We came back to the hotel, did paperwork, ran to the market to get some formula and drinks, and then came home and put her in the bath, which she absolutely loved!! She was amazed by the bubbles and seemed like she would have played in the bath for hours. We dried her up and I rocked her for a few minutes, put her to bed and she was out!!! Now to see if she sleeps through the night.
Honestly the day could not have been any better. I am trying to throw in all the facts of the day without writing a novel, but I can't believe how amazing the last few hours have been.
Our prayers have been answered beyond comprehension. We are so blessed.
Oh, by the way, she is just the cutest little thing, and has some Chinese words. I wish I spoke Chinese
so I new
what she was saying. When we were at the market she squealed and was saying something, but I haven't a clue. Our guide recognized a few of the words at dinner. It is soooo cute.
