We have Baby Christian!!!

He is beautiful and looks just like his pictures. He came to us without crying, but was sad once we got to the hotel room. We did get a couple of smiles and some giggles, but then he got sad. Jacob is heartbroken when he cries and tries to hug him and pat his back. It's so sweet.

They were a little late bringing him to the Civil Affairs Office, so we were looking out the window. We caught a glimpse of a man coming into the building holding him. We knew it was him becuse he is dressed in the same blue coat he had on in his birthday pictures.

Enjoy the pictures of our first meeting and we will write again soon. Thank you for your prayers for our family,

I am so happy for you! We were just in Changsha in November picking up our little guy from Heng Yang, so it brings back so many emotions and memories (I'm the one who helped you get into the Heng Yang yahoo group). Christian looks so healthy. I look forward to keeping up with your trip via this blog. -Andrea
