Day 3...I think :)

LOL...I'm not sure what day we are on...I'm slightly jetlagged :)

Few things first...PLEASE, please be praying for our kiddos at home.  I guess our 2 babies are having a really hard time!!  We were very worried about leaving Cana and she is struggling greatly!!!

Yes, we did take gotcha video but are unable to load it from the camcorder so that will have to wait until we are home...sorry :)

Oh..we are getting all of your precious comments on facebook but we can't access fb to comment back so know we are reading them and cherishing them!!!  So, feel free to comment here on the blog...we just love reading all of your comments!!!

Solomon continues to amaze us with how well he is doing!  He is such a happy little guy.  He is also a very busy little guy.  He loves to see how EVERYTHING works...it's a whole new world to him and he is enjoying exploring!!!  They tell us that he takes a 2 hour nap everyday but we don't believe it...LOL...he doesn't have time to slow down and rest :)  He is sleeping great at night.  Ohhhh, his precious little voice..it's so sweet.  He talks non-stop

And boy oh boy is he a daddy's boy.  He absolutely LOVES Paul.  Mom's pretty coo but he adores his daddy...it is so beautiful to watch him interact with daddy.  We are so blessed that he is attaching to both of us and I am so excited to see my prayers being answered...I prayed specifically that he would latch on to his daddy :)

He LOVES playing ball...looks like we have another baseball player Papa Jim :) Get you mitt ready!!


We are off to do some sightseeing today.  Here's some more pictures and a little video of our giggly guy..he was watching this video this morning and he couldn't stop laughing and talking...it was hilarious! The first picture is my favorite...we just discovered he sucks his thumb when he sleeps :)

The kiddos did great today at Nana and Papa's house. We had a Birthday Cake for Sarah and played outside all afternoon. Your little Cana had a blast and was full of giggles! :D They were very happy to see their other cousins when Aunt Jamie got here. We miss you all so much and are keeping you in our prayers.
Love,
David and Erika =D
P.s. Keep the photos coming they are so SWEET!

Dear Stacy,
we have been praying praying praying for your safety and for the Lord to bless your attachment efforts and cause Solomon to transition well into your family! Happy to hear Him answering so mightily. Love you guys. Alida, btw Here is an email from Lois..She thinks you would like this while you are in China!


HI Alida,

If you want to alert the Richards family (in case they are checking email in China), there is a wonderful charity gift store on Sha Mian Island in Guangzhou, China. Many American families stay on Sha MIan during their final step of the adoption process with the US Consulate. http://www.agiftfromchina.co.uk/
I was sad that I didn’t discover the store until my third trip. The gifts are high quality and I understand that many are made by former orphans There are numerous types of items that make wonderful gifts. I was running out of cash, so I even bought some things on my credit card because I knew people would appreciate them. There is a link to their store below and people can even purchase online. God bless you,Lois

Wow God is Awesome! At first I wondered how you kids could pull off the finance part when I heard about your plans. But then it was not you it was HIM! Praise God!

I am glad things are going good in China. I am praying for the children and troops back on the home front.

Love Aunt Lenore

What a beautiful little guy! Your comments about him exploring remind me of our trip to our son in 2007 - it is so much fun to watch them as their world just grows larger and larger! Blessings to your family!
