The next morning after gotcha (Monday 17th) we got her all dressed up. Today, she would get her passport photo made and we would go to four different government offices to sign paperwork. At the end of the morning, Eliza would officially be our daughter. And as our guide said, “Now, no one can take her away from you.”
So this is our official family photo! This is the photo on our certificate of adoption. Don’t we all just look super happy?After all of the appointments, we were very worn out. We came back to the room for the rest of the day and evening. It was nice to have some down time with our girl. She is just awesome.
We have been able to FaceTime with our kids about once a day. It is so nice to be able to see them and talk to them daily. I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t see them and hear their little voices about everyday. We miss them so much. This family photo will be so much sweeter with Sydney and Ben in it as well.
