Registration Day

The Backpack Boys

Paperwork Millionth check

Getting in to the van when all was final.

Today we spent the morning at the gov't building answering questions and getting our signatures and fingerprints on the paperwork. Keith and I went to a local restaraunt for late lunch and then to the store to purchase a toy that makes noises. Yeah, that really is a crazy thing to do. Please do not take this a permission to send me all your annoying electronic toys. Noah fell asleep in the van on the way back to the hotel and has refused an afternoon nap. He is getting more and more sullen, the more tired he becomes. He has cried so little that I am surprised and truly expect there to be a flood at some point. Here are some pictures from today.

I love the backpack picture.

Bless Noah's little heart. Ella did the same thing....she worked so hard at keeping it all in and not crying, but we could see the look on her face was not saying "all is okay". She eventually felt comfortable enough with us to let it out...but it took a long time. Noah will get there, too. It is interesting to see how they all handle their grief in such a different way-just like us adults, right?

Noah is so adorable!!

I love how he clings to the picture book that you sent to him. It's going to be ok. He's taking it all in and trying to understand what is happening. He is so very handsome.

What an awesome little man! You're making me jealous for another boy!!!!

The floodgates opened in Guanzhou for Evan. Boy was it a flood! But it passed with a good nap!

I'm loving your trip! Terry

He is so cute. I love that he brings you your shoes. He is already trained. :)

Ethan did not cry any after we got him. Maybe Noah will not cry. Maybe they talked to him about his new family enough that he kind of understands what is going on and is not too sad.

We look forward to meeting him
