Day 4 - We have a new son!

We headed out to the Orphanage this morning at 8:30 and it was a short ride there.

On the way both Miss Magoo and I prayed.

I signed some paperwork and then he came in!  It couldn't have gone better!

He gave me a hug and showed me all of his things he brought with him.  A  backpack full of things!  Pictures of his friends and I believe his foster family?  He also had, everything we sent him in the care packages.  Our guide asked him what American name he would like to have and he chose Michael!  So it's official, Michael JinPeng!

After some time in the reception room, we walked around the orphanage and he said good-bye to his friends and his teacher.

She was saying something to him and you could tell that she was very fond of him.  She began to cry when he was walking away, and I lost it.  I waited till she was finished and hugged her and said thank you, thank you.  She hugged me back.  She was so sweet!

Miss Magoo and Michael are getting along famously!  You would think they have been together always.  They haven't stopped playing together.

We stopped by Wal-Mart on the way back to the hotel and it was so sweet.  Michael, would help Miss Magoo along and let her go in front of him.  They even had a good chase each other around while I was looking at clothes for him. Okay, I wouldn't usually  let them do that, but they were bonding and no one was around.

We brought a camera for him and MM has one too, so they're now taking pictures of each other taking pictures and of everything else.

He just showed me 3 disposable cameras and he let me know it has pictures of his friends and foster family.  Can't wait to get those developed when we get home.

Michael isn't timid or shy. He seems to be very comfortable with us.  Thank you God!  He just gave miss Magoo a present.  What a sweetheart!

Oh and he's asked to be called Michael, already!

We are so blessed!!!!

Thank you everyone for your prayers, I have definitely felt them.  God is so good!!

YAY!!!! I'm so happy to read your blog this morning! Welcome Michael!!!! I would get his cameras developed before leaving China. There is a camera shop in Guangzhou if you can't find one there. It's cheap and might help him say good-bye to have the pics before he leaves.

wow wow wow!!! That is so awesome Cathy! I did ask Arielle before and said she didn't know him, but she now says she does...although I don't think she knows him well. Arielle did tell me she was popular at the O :) she's pretty humble about it too :P More pics!
