I know I got some anxious mamma's and babba's in the states with their noses all but pushed up against the computer screen waiting...the brief is I had a WONDERFUL! visit with all your children and I can tell you they are just BEAUTIFUL!!! all looked wonderfully taken care of and happy healthy and I'd loved to have had about another 1/2 hour with each but they didn't give us tons of time....Kira was so sweet, smiled, made eye contact had wonderful manners and played the piano!!! She's amazing! She has a sweetness about her and I just know she'll blossom in her family! Kimi's lucky I didn't stick her in my suitcase!!! The minute I spoke to her she just had this genuine full faced smile that lit up the room. You can tell she's a happy girl!! AND when I picked her up she wraps her arms around my neck and gives me a real squeeze and a kiss!!! (melt my heart...that's when I wanted to steal her) I don't think it hurt I just gave her stickers candy and a stuffed animal! and Jacob was soooo excited to see us! His little arms just waved back and forth when I showed him his presents but he was so bundled he couldn't get his hands on them! He LOVED the phone! I didn't get to pick him up because by the time I got all the dumb packaging off the gifts (think Christmas morning with a big crowd watching you trying to get them out!) and I took some pictures they rushed into the next room! But seriously, I'm not sure they come much cuter than that little guy! Ignore the pink coat...our Sammy was in pink EVERY picture we got! I wish I'd gotten better pics of Kira and Kimi, but our guide was the photographer, so my apologies! I have a whole other story to tell from our perspective...but we are tierd and I know if I were in my Huaian friends shoes...I'd be DYING to see my children so I wanted to get these up asap...then it's rest time for the DeLuca's and hopefully another post later!!! Will did ALOT better than expected...it was emotional for him..but nothing like CA! So overall the day was a GREAT success....Thanks be to God!!!
oh, and the picture of the little fella in the yellow was a hoot! I peeked in on Jacob to see if he was playing with his toys on our way out and the little guy next to him was giving it all he had to climb over into the crib with him to get the toys....I have a feeling he was succesful if the nanny's didn't stop him!
having trouble uploading video....gggrrrr!!! I have this FABULOUS one of Kimi and Kira with her playing the piano, but it might be to big...still working...stay tuned!
