June 12th 2006
Wow what an awesome emotional day. We went to the Civil affairs office at 10:00 am and
the girls were not there yet and they asked us to sit in the waiting room. After about 15 minutes of waiting the elevator doors opened and out walked Hannah and Abbey Bonk.
Wow!! We recognized her right away and she was so cute and she went right to us. She was laughing and playing and would sit on our laps. She loves her bear so much and would not let it go. When it was time for the nannies to leave Hannah started wailing and the grieving began. She cried and cried. After we filled out a bunch of acceptance document we went back to the hotel and Hannah was very, very quiet. We thought she was hungry and so we gave her some oatmeal. she loved it and started to really come out of her shell. She loves playing with her ball and with bubbles and balloons and Mom she loves all of her birthday presents!!!! She is sweet huggable girl and has a wonderful smile!!!! God is so awesome and for those of you I told that I prayed to God that Hannah would speak English her first words were Hello momma and Hello Papa!!! It just put me in tears!!!!! Right now the 4 girls are having a blast with eachother and we found out Hannah and Abbey were in the same room at the orphanage and they even came dressed in the same clothes.
She is very active and fun and really reminds me of Caleb.
Oh by the way we did walk the Great Wall of China and wow!!! I can't wait to tell you about that walk. It was something else!!!!! However it was a very cool experience.
We are having a small problem with pictures so we are using some of Teresa's pictures and hopefully we can get some of ours on soon.
Love and miss you all!!!
We are having the time of our lives!!!!
