December 21st, 2009--Gotcha Day!

Today we met Xiao Chun for the first time at the Ministeries of Civil Affairs in Hefei, Anhui. She was accompanied by two women from the Fuyang Orphanage, who brought her straight from her foster family in BengBu. Although it was 50 degrees outside, she was dressed in three layers of clothes with a coat on top. A big bag of clothes were given to us, in addition to some food she is used to eating. We were also given some toys and two beautiful photo albums. It's apparent to us that she is very loved by her foster family! It was a very sad time for her as the orphanage ladies explained to her in Chinese that we were her new mom and dad. After an hour the ladies left, we gathered our things, and went back to our room at the Holiday Inn. Everyone was very tired, and we enjoyed a quiet evening in our room.
