For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.  Ephesians 2:10

It's Official

We signed our adoption papers today.  Moses is officially our son!  Praise the Lord! 
After I email this to blogger, I will send pictures as well.  I know the information and pictures are not lined up as I had them last time we went to China, but this will have to do.  The gov't here has blocked blogger and I can no longer access it.  So I set up my account to email them directly to my blog.  My sweet friend, Karen, is checking it for me and moderating my comments.  She's one of my favorite people. 
The first picture looks strange, huh?  I bet you'll never guess what it is.  Unless maybe your Xinxin.  This is Moses' potty.  Mario was a little put out that it was pink.  But our guide was nice enough to go to the store on Gotcha day and bring it back for us so we could go directly to our room with our boy.  We are happy to say that Moses knew exactly what it was and has used it successfully since we received it.  (With the exception of a #2, but that might be TMI)  Just pray for us on that front please! 
The next picture probably requires no explanation.  Yes, Moses is in his family colors already.  Just like with Judah, we couldn't leave China with out getting him in his OSU clothes.  Gotta love the Buckeyes.....  

Our boy loves to eat and does very well with a spoon.  Tonight at dinner, he even held chopsticks and used them to pick up rice.  He does better than me!  Oh and he was also more selective tonight.  He gave me some green onions, snap peas and leafy greens while shaking his head no, meaning he didn't want them.  That was different from every other meal we've had.  Much like Mario, when we walk into the resteraunts for our meals, he gets very excited. 
We went to an acrobatic show tonight.  It was impressive how the were able to bend their bodies.  I posted a few of the pictures.  Moses was very entertained by it.  Especially the live birds that occasionally went flying overhead.
When we made it back to the hotel, I got the chance to spend a few minutes with another CWA family that is leaving for GZ tomorrow for their last week in China.  I got to watch our boys playing together while we chatted.  It was so nice to finally meet you in person Ally!  
I am hoping sleep pays us a visit tonight.  We really need it.  Love you all.
