We hopped on a (very smooth) flight to Xian where we would meet Elyana!! She was transported with the nannies on a 3hr drive to meet us!
Driving on our way to the government building where we would meet her.
Elyana with her Nanny. I can tell she loved Elyana….she got tears in her eyes when she said goodbye.
At first Elyana was ok, but then the Nanny asked to hold her again….then when I took her back she began to cry. (which we thought wasn’t all bad. shows us that she was attached to her care givers)
We have 3 children now!!! Feeling so very, very blessed.
She LOVED her sunglasses….kept trying to put them back on.
We are now a family of 5! God is soooooo amazing!
It was really cold in the building, so until we could get to the store…we stayed covered up with her blanket!
So, so sweet. She was exhausted by the time we drove back o the hotel. She dozed off for a few minutes.
The first laugh we heard was in the baby store, when she was trying to pull of a sale price tag. She thought it was so funny when she pulled it off. She IS ornery!! (John says she gets it from him….no doubt about it)
I got to feed her rice cereal, then she took a bottle from me. The nannies said she has 2 bottles a day. (good for mom and daughter bonding!)
Bath time was a VERY silly, happy time. She really loved the water and even tried to splash me.
All squeaky clean after a looooonnnnggg day!! She is such an amazing gift from heaven. The kids immediately fell in love with her today…..we all have. This little girl is already bringing so much joy into our hearts! Please continue to pray for her as she adjusts to our family….that God would give us wisdom to care for her every need.
Words cannot even say all the feelings and emotions we’ve felt all in one day. She fell asleep very well in her crib, and everyone else is snoozing already too. So it’s my turn now. We get up in 7 hrs. for a full day of paperwork.
Will keep posting pictures in the days to come. We love and miss all our family and friends! Thank you again for all your love and support.
