Forever Family Day Officially
This morning we began our day by going back to the Civil Affairs Office to finalize our adoption. Yesterday we got our little girl, but she wasn't officially ours until today. Our guide, Wendy, met us and did all of the translation making sure that all of us understood exactly what was going on. What an amazing day to be able to do this on International Children's Day, a holiday for children in China. After our adoption ceremony we went to the children's park with MANY others and walked around. It is beautiful here and we had a chance to take pictures with the pretty flowers. God has been so faithful and Lia has been very happy all day today. There is one language that we all understand - LOVE. She has given us so many kisses today and is crazy about her big sister. We had a chance this afternoon to go the pool at the hotel and she loved the water. Unfortunatly, after a little bit, it was very obvious that we still have a baby girl with a sick heart. Her lips turned very bright blue. Please be praying that God heals her heart. We have her cardiologist appt. scheduled as soon as we get home. The rest of the day we spent time playing and resting in the hotel room. Tonight Tia had the chance to skype with her classmates at school and really loved that. I have a very sleepy little girl that I need to put to bed, so until tomorrow here are a few more pictures.
