Today we were up at 5:30 again...
all except SJ~ she made it to 6:20ish
and slept amazingly well.
Went down about 9
and really didn't move all that much all night.
Before we give the impression that everything
is just going off without a hitch,
SJ is having moments of grief~ little whimpers
and BIG crocodile tears...
especially when we do something new
or leave the room.
That is a very positive sign for us
and she always comes to me for comfort.
She holds her arms up and wants me to hold her.
No bathtub in our room so we gave the girls splash baths.
SJ wasn't so sure about it
but when I handed her the sprayer... she smiled. :)
We had another yummy breakfast.
SJ ate two pieces of toast, watermelon, congee, cherrios, & OJ.
Our guide, Isabel met us in the lobby
and we were off to the Civil Affairs building to make
our adoption official and final.
SJ was very serious the whole morning~
especially when we walked up to the building
and she saw all the people that had dropped her off yesterday.
She held on to me even when they tried to take her.
Here we are with the people who came from the orphanage...
the head orphanage nanny, assistant orphanage director,
and the doctor on staff.
They were so sweet and wanted to know all about her night.
They shared some very touching info with us
and we were so appreciative.
It was hard to for them to leave us
but they did first and then we were off to the notary office.
Officially ShayleeJoy's forever family!!!
God is so good all the time!!!
