Magical moments!!!

I wanted just show you some important pictures when our baby said goodbye to China. It was emotional moment for us.

We are home!!!

Today just pictures!!! We are home safe and sound. Our children are happy and played together whole day. Now it is time for bed. But nobody is tired!!! Victoria was afraid of our puppy. Now they are the best fiends. She likes to share her food with her. It is so funny. I will post more pictures tomorrow. Now just few.

Last day in China!

And red couch pictures. We are feeling much better. Even chinese food was good today. Great day and tomorrow we are going home!!! Hooray!!!

We Are OK!

We are in Guangzhou. Everything is fine beside we all are sick. Adrian is much better but poor Lukas. I have 3 children now to take care of. We love White Swan. And the best is we are all together again too.
I promise I will post more soon.

Where Are They?

For those of you who are wondering about Katrina and her family, they are safe and sound in Guangzhou. I know this because I've read other people's blogs from the group and they say that the whole group is now together at the White Swan. Katrina has not been on the internet since leaving Nanching (yes, I am stalking her!) but I'm sure she will post as soon as she can. I hope it's soon because Olivia keeps asking to see her MeiMei Toria! I just thought some of you might be concerned about her! :) ~Lynn

Last Day In Nanching!

A family of four had next great day. We went to the Tengwan Pavilion. We loved to climb the stairs. Victoria had less fun. She loves to walk not to stay in the carrier. She runs away from us so quick and it is hard to catch her. I always thought Adrian was pretty active but she is even faster.LOL!!!
Thanks for all comments. It is so nice to read them if you are so far from home. Have a great day and see you soon!!!

Another day. We went to the museum today. Victoria was not too happy. She likes to walk... actually she likes to run. My muscles are growing so fast. She is very active little one. Just like her brother. She did not have a nap today and evening was very hard. Finally they all are sleeping. Kochani jest super. Malutka jest niesamowita. Straszliwie aktywna jak Adrianek. Biegaja razem i sa wniebowzieci. Teraz smacznie spia i ja zaraz do nich dolacze. Dobranoc a u Was dziendobry!!!

What a great day again. Victoria is just amazing. She is funny, sweet and loves Adrian. They play together so nice. She is feeling better. Adrian just started some cold. He had a fever 103 today. I think it is this same like Tori. We will see. We went to the People's Park today. It was big fun for everybody. Victoria stayed in stroller half a hour but just after she wanted to walk. We love to watch how she is just too cute. Now we are in the room relaxing. Thank you all for prayers and following our journey.

Now THIS is a happy baby! So beautiful!!

Everyone...this is Lynn. Katrina is not able to blog from China or even send emails so I'm hijacking her blog!! She was only able to send me one picture today. We have to use Skype to do that. She is able to read emails though so they can read your comments.

So, Monday was a great day for Victoria. She's such a cuite! She loves her big brother, Adrian. She chases him around and around the lobby of the hotel. It's so funny to see her walk. You can tell she's not used to wearing only one pair of pants! She walks like a penguin! She slept all night long and never moved from the same position. Katrina and Lukasz slept well too, finally. Victoria is bonding well with her mommy and is warming up to daddy. That's a good thing...she's bonding the way she should.

Olivia tried to talk to her on Skype but Victoria really didn't want to look at her. I think they will become cyber friends soon...Olivia said Ni Hao Toria!

Today was the adoption finalization at the civil affairs office so now they are officially a FAMILY!! Tomorrow they are going to visit the People's Park. I hope we can get more pictures posted soon!

Gotcha Day!!!

It is 4 am and I can't sleep. I am crying...I need to share my feelings with all of you. Thanks Lord that you sent us to China in perfect time. Victoria has a respiratory infection. My instinkt told me to give her antibiotic right away. The gotcha moment was very hard for all of us. Victoria screamed and kicked and fighted with me for an hour. She was so hot and so dirty. I was strong...I put all the clothes out of her and gave her a bath tub. She felt much better in moment. She relaxed and started to smile. I had some problems to take her out of bath. She was gray...sticky. We were so upset that they gave her to us in so bad shape...But now we know...It is so sad. Her foster family did not have a heater in the house. They had open fire in the room. This is the explanation of her dirt. (Even in her nose and ears) She had the smoke everywhere. Poor little thing. Her clothes (many many clothes) were black from smoke. They just tryed to make her warm...Yes I am crying now. You will be never cold again my little baby...I promise!!!
We love you Victoria mama and baba
