Another great day in China

Saturday, December 29, 2012



Well, I feel almost guilty writing this, but I don't think that there could be an easier adoption than this one! I realize that many things could come up in the future, but at this point, Kaikai is one easy-going little guy! He eats great, goes to sleep as soon as we tell him to get in bed, smiles, laughs and is becoming more and more affectionate with us each day.

Yesterday we finished up all of our paperwork in Jinan and today we did a little bit of shopping. Kaikai didn't want to be carried yesterday, but today he let David hold him while we walked around town. Since then, Kaikai has been super-affectionate with David. Oh my! It is so sweet. I guess that I'm going to have to do a little weight lifting so that I can carry him around, as well. Kaikai is shorter than Grace, but definitely heavier, and I'm about at my weight limit carrying Grace around!

Lily and Grace have continued to do wonderfully and have been so helpful. Grace has needed a little bit of reassurance that she is still greatly loved, but I expected that would be the case. She adores her new brother, but hasn't had to share the youngest child place before. It is a great learning experience for her!

It's snowy and cold in Jinan today, so we'll be glad to move to warmer Guangzhou weather tomorrow. We had hoped to visit the Heze SWI, but found out that it is an 8 hour drive from Jinan. So, unfortunately that won't happen. The SWI staff who were here in Jinan were so kind. It is obvious that they cared for our sweet boy. I'm glad that we got to meet and interact with some of them here in Jinan.

Thank you so much to all of you who prayed for Kaikai and for our family. God has certainly answered in abundance! Kaikai is such a treasure! We are so grateful that this little boy has joined our family.
