For once in my life I am absolutely speechless Gina. I am crying tears of joy as I am reading this. You finally have her and goodness, she is stunning. Thank you so much for taking the time to post these. You must be exhausted. I love you Gina girl and we are overjoyed for you, Gordon and Mia. :)

Love,
Jonni

Awesome! We are so thrilled for you and know exactly the emotions you are having right now. I can't really believe that we are all in China right now and have our little angels.

I hope your first night isn't too hard on little Mia. We'll be thinking of you.

Goodnight from Guangzhou.

Cora said...

Oh my goodness, she is beautiful! What a sweet heart! It is such a tough moment so happy and yet so sad and confusing. Soon she will understand how much you love her and you are not going anywhere. Congratulations, take care of that sweet girl.

Congratulations! I hope you survive the beds! We know first hand how painful they are!

Andrea said...

Yay!!! Congratulations Mommy and Daddy. A couple of the pics remind me of when we met Avari. Avari was trying to get away from me until her dad wanted to hold her and then she could get close enough to me.

oh Gina, she is simply STUNNING. You all look so perfect together.
AND - it is a good thing that she was crying when you got her - a very good thing. I always get worried over the babies that are emotionless, and have that vacant look - always a bad sign. Crying baby = GOOD.
She really is a beautiful baby. Each day will get a little better....promise.
CONGRATS! So excited for you guys -- FINALLY!!!
I only have a couple of more bloggers that I follow left waiting for their babies, and you were a very important one. xoxox

Hanne said...

Congratulations!! She is absolutely beautiful. Oh, I remember those chairs in the CAB in Changsha - and how hard is to have a new baby that is just so sad. Hope you have all settled a bit, and that you have already started to bond..
Enjoy the rest of your stay in China
