Cholita is going to be a big sister!

Not too much bigger, mind you, but bigger.  For now.  Little brother is 22 months younger than Cholita, 
but according to updated measurements,  about the same weight.

He's in the Yunnan province, in the capital city of Kunming.  He's in foster care.  He turned 3 in July, although based on his picture, Cholita claims he's only two, because duh, he's holding up two fingers.
(She hasn't spent much time in Asia.)

What this picture tells me is that he's a peace-loving child, but also bold enough to wear animal print clothing, a combination I find very endearing.

Our favorite line from his paperwork:  "He cares everyone and everything around him."  Our second favorite line:  "He can cross buttons with glass fibers."  We have absolutely no idea what that means, but think it sounds advanced, if not dangerous.

I would show you more, I really would, but our papers are not quite off to China yet and I'm not sure of the rules for internet posting.  If you live in our area, I'd he more than happy to show you his picture.  As a matter of fact, I'll probably show you several pictures and will expect oohing and aahing over each one.  I can say that he's cute as a button (Which, did I mention he can cross with glass fibers?) and we're ecstatic.  

P.S.  If you don't live in our area, and ask really nicely, I'd probably e-mail you a picture too.

Why I've been absent from the blog....

I have an excuse. 
  Actually, a really good one.

Do you remember this photo from way back when?

The never-ending paper trail that included documents like these?  
Documents that for all we know told us we'd just bought a timeshare in Shanghai?

And do you recall Rose's wish left on my pillow last year?

Well, I've neglected the blog because I've been busy.
 Busy filling out papers and granting wishes.

More to come......
