gotcha day {Hao Hao} pt. 2

Great pics from my incredible K-man.

Hao Hao
agreeing to be adopted...

Loving on his new little brother!
Those bangs on Isaiah are still a thorn in my side.

No adoption is complete without a trip to the local Wal Mart.
I think it's required.

More fun at the hotel!

Everything went well for K and the boys on this second Gotcha Day.
We skyped with them and HH is not nearly as shy
as we suspected.
He is all smiles and very animated.
Macy had a long conversation with him in Chinese,
explaining a few things and laughing a lot.
She said that HH said that Baba is so cute.
I love that!
And he readily called me Mommy.
Oh my heart.

I gotta run for now.
I hope to post a few skype pics that I took because they're so
darn funny.
I've got a lot going on so I will get to that when I can.

THANK YOU for praying for my amazingly brave husband.
He is sleeping now (I hope!).
Please continue to pray today as you think of him...

This ain't easy!

Talk to you soon.

Awesome a million times!! Your big boy's kind face reminds me of our Amarin with the little ones. What a blessing to have the boys all getting along so well!

I was so excited to check in and see this post! Glad all is going well and rejoicing they are all together!
Praying that everyone is sleeping soundly! I know your mama heart must be bursting!

Adrian Roberta said...

Your sweet boys amaze me! So joyful and confident, what a blessing to add to your already precious family!

when you first posted about H-H needing a family, (before you knew he would be coming to yours), my heart was breaking for the sadness in his face as he watched his friend leaving, with him being the last to be adopted. And today, it brings tears to my eyes to see the utter joy in his face at joining a family. You can see his eagerness in the signing of the paperwork, and the happiness being with his little bro - and he hasn't even met everyone else yet!! Congratulations to your family - I'm so happy we got to experience adopting a baby AND an older child thanks to people who encouraged us, like you. ♥♥

Donna said...

So wonderful to see your boys together!! Will continue to pray for an extra measure of whatever Super K Man may need!!!

Cari said...

Lovin' the pics of your sons!!! How wonderful that Maci has retained her chinese so that she is able to translate. I'm sure that will be a tremendous help in the days, weeks & months to come. Praying for you all!

Debby said...

Oh Lori!! So thrilled for you & for the boys!! What a wonderful honey you have. Looks like things might get a little bit easier now.


Madeleine said...

How have I missed all this ??!!??!!? Oh wait, I have been out of touch. :P

How wonderful!! I love the pictures! I love that your sons are almost on their way home!! I love that your husband is doing this and still looks happy about it! I love that everything has GOD's handprints all over it!!

And it is just wonderful.

I need to amke an effort to get online more while I am here...waiting. And will continue to keep yous all in my prayers.

Chris said...

So glad those first hours went so well! I would love to know what our kids actually write on those papers, just hours after meeting us. Were they well coached? I know that Joseph didn't seem to have any prompting...I need to ask him

Adeye said...

I am simply in tears here. God is SO good to rescue the orphan, my friend. No, it never is easy, is it? Never.

What a sweet boy...I LOVE how he is already loving on his brother. A treasure indeed.

And so the home stretch begins.....hang in there, time will fly.

Rejoicing with you today.

Doug said...

Congratulations on the two new additions, Lori. TWO?!? Wow.

I'm thinking our Zane will be a huge help too when we bring another son home.

Tina said...

Oh Lori...they are absolutely precious! We are rejoicing with you and your beautiful family. I espcially love the photo of Elijah signing the paperwork. The two boys seem to be enjoying each other too! Happy, Happy Mother's Day to you!!!

Nearly cried with the picture of Elijah signing his own paperwork.
So precious. I am so impressed with K-man you have quite a gem for a husband (which I am sure you know), he is accomplishing no small feat!

Lifting you all in prayer!
