Today Ahnya is ours forever!

Today we have the Farwell Ceremony at the Orphanage for the children. This is when the nannies and staff say "good bye" to the kids and entrust them in our care. It is sure to be a tearful and touchhing event. Then off to the Embassy to declare Ahnya as a US Citizen!!!! This will be a day full of events and very tiresome as well. So as of 9:30 a.m. (less than 30 mintes) Ahnya will be in my arms forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't have a lot of time to post, but Ahnya is such an easy and super sweet baby. Her peronsality is easy and relaxed. She doesn't cry much; unless she's hungry or wants to be held. She's ticklish, smiley, and overall happy. Ahnya is smaller than I initially thought. She's in 3-6 or 6 month clothing, wears size 1 shoes, and size 1 diapers! Oh, my goodness, such a beauty. The internet and electricity sucks here! So downloading pics is hard so all I have time to share is 1 photo. She's just a doll and you all are going to love her. Hugs to everyone, Love Ann
