and went straight to meet our babies!! Calvin wanted nothing to do
with us and his nanny said he always cries when he meets white people.
We had already known this so we were prepared. It took many tries and
a miracle, but by the end of our time together he had fallen asleep
with Dave, given us both lots of kisses and let me hold him (as long
as no nannies were around!). The American couple that runs the home
said they had never seen Calvin warm up to anyone so quickly and were
amazed. They said it was as if he knew we were his parents, which is
what we had prayed for! Piper is just sweet and beautiful. She just
smiled and baby talked the whole time, not one fuss the whole day and
she fell asleep in my arms. She is very happy and cuddly. We can't
wait to back tomorrow to see them!!
We are having troubles with the internet so I'm not sure if we'll get
a video up, but I know some of you are waiting for news, so we do have
some fun photos. You will see how Calvin gave us evil eyes at first,
but he really did so much better than we were thinking he would. We
even took him to lunch with the some people and he was so great. He
really loves Dave already. He's taking longer to warm up to me, so I
was happy that he let me hold him at all and at the end of the day he
even raised his arms for me to hold him! YAY! He is so hilarious and
loves to play.
Noah, Charli and Tegan!! I miss you so much!! You are going to love
your new brother and sister!! Piper just smiles and smiles all day and
Calvin is so much fun, just like Elia! Thank you Aunty Kris for the
squeaky books!! They were a hit!!
Thank you all for your prayers. We sooooo felt them!! We'll be in
touch as often as possible! It's an ordeal from here, I tell ya! We
love you guys!!
