|Right after the earthquake, we were interviewed for a local TV station. At that time we thought the adoption would be delayed even more because our paperwork was buried in the court building.|
|At Sanford airport. We were so excited to see the kids arrive because we were silly enough to think that meant we'd be taking them home that day. Or even the next day.|
Our paperwork had been in process 972 days by then!!
|Watching the video of the kids deplaning and trying to pick out the children.|
|Kids had been at the airport a full day and we hadn't been allowed to see them yet. We all went to the doors to protest.|
|I'm smiling, but I'd led the group to the doors (where we weren't allowed) to demand to see the children, so I was determined to succeed. And really, we were all sooooo bored. This is a tiny airport with only one small terminal so there was nothing to do but sit and wait.|
When we got them to the hotel, we had to bathe them even though it was after 2 a.m. They were filthy, and their names and ours were written all over them in permanent marker. On their arms and back.
|The next day. |
We didn't wake up until 10:00 so missed the hotel breakfast.
|One year home|

|I bought the chinese, and Adam bought the rice krispies cake.|
