Meeting miss "D"

Come to find out our agencies transition home (called Hannah’s Hope) is only about three miles and two round-a-bouts from our hotel. Carrie and I were the only two people in the van as we pulled up in front of the gates that I have seen hundreds of times before in other family’s blogs and videos.

As we walk through the gates and then enter the infant building, we find her.

She is sleeping on the couch next to her special mother.

Carrie reaches down and gently scoops her up into her arms.

She has this cute little ways of sucking on her middle two fingers of her left hand, so plop in her mouth they go as she tries to figure out who has her in their arms.

My mother sent a pillow pet along with us to give to our daughter when we meet her. She loved it, cuddled with it and squealed with joy.

I got to feed her a bottle and then Carrie rocked her to sleep.

Before we knew it, the driver told us it was time to head back to the hotel. As we climbed into the van we learned that there are two other families there to meet their children for the first time as well. They were both great families and he had a wonderful time getting to know all four of them.

The hotel accommodations were pretty nice too.

This has got to be one of the best days Ever!

When we got back to the hotel we did everything we could to stay awake and try to switch ourselves over to ET time. We gave in about 8 O'clock and went to sleep.

The next day we went back to HH to visit our daughter and then we went out on the town with the Sanders family. Rather than type everything out about that day I think I will just copy a link for you to read it from their blog.
