Hanna's Care Package was Received!

Today was a great day- we received confirmation that Hanna received our care package. We received our letter seeking confirmation last week and we confirmed that she is the daughter for us. Now we just wait for that paperwork to process back to China Center for Adoption Affairs (CCAA) and the US consulate office. They will approve our case and then grant us travel approval. That is an email I can't get soon enough. Vince and I plan to to tour Beijing before heading to Hangzhou, where Hanna currently lives with her foster parents. From there we head back to Guangzhou, where our US embassy is located. We had our first toddler shower this weekend that my dear friend, Amy Hadley threw for us. We are blessed in so many ways. The first picture is her holding the scrapbook we made with pictures of us, Davis, mom and dad, Vince's parents, Nick and Lauren and her bedroom. We labeled each picture in English and in Mandarin. Thanks to our friends who are from Hangzhou who assisted us with the translations. The second is of her holding the stuffed caterpillar we sent as part of the package. She is a cutie and the personality description they provided us says that she is smart and naughty. She likes to imitate people. Seems like a great addition to our family!
