CallaAnne Day~

Today was a long day waiting for our baby love. We woke up super early because of jetlag and went down for our daily breakfast feast. 
Toast and coffee was about all I could handle but it was SO good! 

We spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon in the room. The girls played with all their toys and when everything was extinguished, I made a play bath complete with color tabs, water bottles, and stacking cups. 
We snacked through lunch and let the girls nap before we left for CallaAnne. 

Our guide picked us up about 2:20 and we left for civil affairs building. She was already there playing in the playroom and we could here her laughing. 

We sat down for paperwork~
And not long after she came walking out with three orphanage staff following telling her mama and baba. She walked right up to Scott, held out her arms, and allowed LOVE to take her in~

Then she came to me and one part of my heart mended right on the spot. The one had been gathered into her forever~
The orphanage said the foster family had talked about us and shown Calla our photo over and over so she knew us when she saw us. That is God!!!

We had to step into an office to promise to love and cherish her always and was reunited once again in the presence of the official~

She came right to me and it was so sweet~

We scooped her up for some photos~
And with the sweet orphanage staff who clearly adored her~
Then headed back to hotel to spend the afternoon getting to know each other. 

Things we know so far:
~She loves baths!

~She's funny and likes If I Was a Bumblebee game and her baba!

~ She loves being held!

~She loves her sippy cup and still take a bottle at night (I LOVE that!)!

~She is an awesome sleeper as long as she's right in the middle of us~
And where else would we want her to be!!! 
Happy CallaAnne Day love!
We are your forever and God has blessed us BIG!

Eccl 3:11 He makes Everything Beautoful in Hos time! 

Amen and amen!!!!!
