We arrived inMonday afternoon at 1:15 pm. We meet Richard at the airport and we went directly to the Dalton Hotel which is a beautiful 5 start hotel . We dropped off our luggage got out the foster mom's gift and our travel documents and were off to the Civil Affairs office,
When we got upstairs to the room to meet Jon Jon there were several families already there waiting ton meet their precious children. I immediately recognized Diana from First a Pearl and Then 2. We hugged and cried as we waited for our children. The 4 families all got their children first.and Jon Jon was in route from ZhouZhou . It gave me chance to see how the children reacted and what they were going through. It was hard to see as the children were having a hard time. Some of them crying or sobbing uncontrollably. My heart was breaking and tears were rolling down my face as I was taking pictures of them all.
Then I saw him coming down the hallway.... It was avery overwhelming and emotional time. Unfortunately all the other families were busy with their children that we did not have help taking pictures. So you seen me with Jon Jon and not Hubby.. He is all bundled up and adorable. He is tinier that what we thought. I was so glad to see him. He did not cry or sob until we got half way to the hotel room.Then we let us have it!! It took about 45 minutes for him to calm down. He finally let me rock him and feed him a bottle and he fell asleep.
Tired but overjoyed and full of Love!!!
