Giving and Receiving

Little missy is up early this morning sqeaking so I thought I'd get on here and post a few more pictures. Yesterday we had our G&R ceremony at the Justice Dept. in Kien Giang. It was a formal ceremony where everyone gets up and says a little speech. Joey actually got up and spoke on our behalf. We signed a few papers and that was it. She is now officially ours. Jolea kept trying to pull the tablecloth off of the table. She loves to test us and see how far she can go. She does understand no, but of course doesn't always listen. She slept most of the way back to HCMC which was great. We actually had a little fender bender on the way back. 2 people on a scooter pulled out in front of us and we hit them. Luckily they were OK. The traffic is just chaotic. I noticed the morning that we were leaving that my flash on my camera wasn't working so the pictures of the G&R ceremony are not that good. I had to go buy a new camera yesterday so I could take more pictures. For the families that asked us to take photos, I could not get good photos but I did get video from my digital camera. I tried to send some of it out last night but it wouldn't go through. Your babies were adorable! Kien Giang is a very poor and small orphanage. They do the best they can with what they have. I'll post again later tonight!

Jolea is just beautiful and she has the sweetest smile. I'm so happy things have gone so well for all of you. I can't wait to meet her, she is one lucky little girl and ya'll are very blessed. We are keeping you in our prayers.
