Meet Wade


Wade and his orphanage rep were one of the first to arrive this morning giving us just enough time to hand our cameras off and walk in to meet him. Because he has been in a city orphanage he has really only seen other kids and his nannies. He was not impressed with us. He has had a rough day but finally feel asleep by rocking his head from side to side on his back. Tomorrow we will try a bath and clean clothes. He ate a bowl of plain congee (rice cooked to almost mush) for dinner but hasn't taken a bottle well. We will have to work on that more tomorrow too. We have to go to the registration office tomorrow but have the afternoon free. He liked the bus ride so hopefully it will go well. Daddy has so far been his favorite. They have played haul the goldfish around in Chuck the dump truck and strolled up and down the hallway in the stroller. Wade has not forgiven me yet for the diaper change..

Mike looks like a natural at this new job. Spoon airplanes were Adams favorite when he did not want to eat. :-) Things will fall into place and he will soon be truly yours. I am so happy for you and Mike.

I imagine it is quite a change for him - meeting new folks with no idea of the wonderful things to come next. That picture of Wake and Mike...the tears just keep welling up...I'm so happy for y'all!
