We have her and she is BEAUTIFUL!

We met her in our room and she is amazing!  So smart!  She has been calling her brothers "guo guo" (which means big brothers) in their picture the last few hours!  She called Jason Baba! (which means daddy) And she really is potty trained.  She motions when she needs to go pee and has gone 3 times! :)

The first hour or so was pretty bad.  She was crying and wanted nothing to do with either one of us.  They said they had picked her up from her foster family just this morning.  The woman that is in the pictures she didnt know before this morning and the man is the Assistant Director of her orphanage and they were both so nice!

She is already a master at the stacking cups and loves watching Chinese cartoons. I think that might have helped as our language is so foreign to her.  After we turned on the tv, she has really opened up. :)

She is doing really good right now.  We heard her first laughs when we put stacking cups on our heads & then letting them fall. lol! Although I am a rasd worried about bedtime.  We got her around 2:30pm & it is now 7:30 p.m. so bed is coming soon...

We are sooooo happy & so thankful! Thank you so much for your prayers. They were certainly felt today.

with lots of love from China,
Kendra
