August 21, 2006: GOTCHA DAY!

What an incredible day this has been! Ana Mei (Bing Bing) has finally joined us and doing fabulous! She cried more than any other child at first, we think for 2 reasons. She has been so well cared for so she didn't want to leave her caretakers, and she's a bit sick with bronchitis. She fell asleep on the bus and slept for over 3 hours I think. Since then, she has been incredible! She's had a bath already and right now her and "ba ba" (da da) are having a ball. She is a happy baby and taking up with both of us already. We are about to crash with jet lag still so we'll post more pics and video later. Love you all and thanks so much for the prayers that you've covered us in.

Aww! What a wonderful day!! I can't wait for more pictures. She's adorable, even with a teary face :). You must be so proud! We can't wait to meet her when you get home. Miyah talks on and on about Ana and says she wants to invite her to her birthday party;) It'll be fun to have another Guangdong girl in the cul-de-sac!
Take care...we'll be praying for the rest of the transition.
