It's been almost 24 hours since Gotcha and Solomon is doing amazing.
So, here's how yesterday went....
We weren't really sure what day we'd be getting Solomon so once we landed and met our guide, she told us we'd be meeting our son 6 hours. We were so excited. After freshening up, we received a phone call telling us that our son was here and ready for us to come and get him. We scooped all our goodies and headed to the 3rd floor of our hotel where our little guy was waiting.
We walked into a conference room and there was a little child standing there and I kept thinking, "that's not him...they brought us the wrong baby". Trying to stay calm, I started looking all over the room and there wasn't any other children but then, this precious little boy...the sweet little one that we've been longing for for so long came running in with a huge smile, pulling the orphanage director into the room. He came straight up to Paul and I & was all smiles until they told us to pick him up :)
He did cry for a little bit but once daddy busted out the toys, he was good to go :) He hasn't cried since. He is very much the smiley, giggly little guy that he was in all of the pictures we received while waiting for him.
We were told today that Solomon was very excited to have a mommy and daddy. He told them he didn't want to nap because he wanted to meet his mommy and daddy.
Today, we finalized the adoption...YAY!!! The orphanage director and assistant asked him if he wanted to go back to the orphanage with them and he said NO & kept shaking his NO...they kept asking him and he wouldn't stop shaking his head NO!!! He wants to stay with his mama & daddy!!! :)
To see pictures from Gotcha Day, you will have to go here...we can't get them to upload onto the blog right now. http://www.flickr.com/photos/9350232@N08/?saved=1
