It's Final- She is ours!





After a good breakfast at the White Swan buffet, we spent the afternoon at the US Consulate. We loaded a bus with a bunch of other families and headed downtown. After some initial paperwork, we raised our right hand, and took an oath that all our paperwork was real and we would love and care for Emma Rose forever. Then they handed us her passport with her Visa stamp inside that allows us to BRING HER HOME to the US. (and we are so ready to come home.) So China has said she is ours, and now the US has said that we can bring her home. It's over- finally. Now we wait for Friday to come so we can catch that plane. Emma Rose was full of herself today. She has eaten everything- she loves carrots- and has laughed, and clapped, and waved at everyone. So tonight she is zonked out on her favorite pillow- snoozing away. Aren't they cute!!!

Little Miss Emma Rose seems to be full of personality...What a joy to see her blossom the last two weeks and we can't wait to see her in person. Lilli checks the site more than once daily and is beside herself to see ER. Her "special" pillow is sooo sweet, Lilli still lays with her special pillow....girls just melt daddy's hearts! I know your ready to come home....got what you came for, did a little site seeing and shopping and ready to introduce her to her extended family....and we are sooo ready to meet her.

Waiting patiently.
Love,
The Berry's

She is so cute!!!!!! What a personality she has. We can relate to ER's pillow. Brandon slept like that on both of us. Cherish that time now because they grow up to fast. B could never do that now, he is a big as I am. Can't wait for you to get home. Have a safe trip!!!!!!
All our love,

The Little's

Good to see you're coming back to the United states. Congradulations on the baby, And I hope you can keep her happy (or just not crying) throughout the newborn/ toddler experience.

-Miss you Mr. Brown!

Oi, achei seu blog pelo google está bem interessante gostei desse post. Gostaria de falar sobre o CresceNet. O CresceNet é um provedor de internet discada que remunera seus usuários pelo tempo conectado. Exatamente isso que você leu, estão pagando para você conectar. O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa. Se você quiser linkar o Cresce.Net(www.provedorcrescenet.com) no seu blog eu ficaria agradecido, até mais e sucesso.
