How cute is this?

Doing good.

AC is a lot more energetic and happy today. We went to have our adoption officialized all good like. We put our thumbprints over our signatures, and AC's footprint made it all official. She's doing great. She slept all night, played by herself while we got ready, and ate like a pig at lunch. She even got to eat some of our noodles. The first toy we gave her yesterday was a pair of link-a-doos. She grabbed them and held them so tight her knuckles were white. She held them all night and had one in her hand this morning when we woke up.

Be sure to check the flickr photo pages even when there isn't a new blog post, as we upload pictures throuought the day, and since we are 13 hours ahead of the US, that is usually 2 am in the morning.

Hi Donna & Nik,
The pictures are beautiful! Keep them coming. I know it was a blessing AC slept all night so you could get much needed rest. We will keep all of you in our prayers and thoughts. Can't wait to see all of you in person . It looks like AC has plenty of sugar on those cheeks to go around.
Love yall,
Mamaw and Papaw

Sarah Grace and I were looking at the pictures this morning and she said "Nonna". I told her that was Aunt Donna with her new cousin, Addison. She said Addison's name! Can't wait until the two of them meet! Donna, I don't think I've ever seen a happier look on your face. It only gets better from here! I love you and can't wait until ya'll get home.

Thanks so much for sharing your journey with us. I am a friend of Nancy's from Wayne County. I am so thankful your trip is going well and am enjoying "seeing" all the sights with you. I hope I get to see Addison Claire in person soon. Stay safe and God bless you on your jouney back home. Charlotte Gatlin

Hey Donna & Nik-
Day sent me this link that Sharon had sent to our family. Congrats on finally getting your daughter! Addison Claire looks precious. I can't wait to see her the next time we see y'all. We'll be praying for a safe trip back for your family-

Laura, the kids and I had big smiles as we looked through the pictures- and we all thought the pictures were beautiful.
Then Laura noticed that Nik was in none of them with AC! Is it that Nik takes good pictures or that pictures without Nik in them are good?

We are praying for you all!
Grace and Peace,

God Bless You All!

Congrats guys. We can't wait to see all three of y'all. Nik, I know you and Donna and kind of busy right now, but while you're "in country," do you think there is any way you could put some pressure on the Chinese government to ice this North Korea missle problem? They seem to be hesitant to support economic sanctions or Japan's call for military action. See if you can turn on the charm and get something done. Everyone here in the United States is counting on you.

We'll be thinking about y'all.
