Day 5: Dec 16, Adoption Day

On the way to the Civil Affairs and the Notary's office to become Julia's permanent legal parents.

Julia loves her new doll. She hasn't had a doll before, and she has changed the doll's clothes many, many times already. She has us in stitches watching her teach the doll to "walk."

Waiting at the Notary's office.

She loves steps. She knows very little English, but everytime we go up and down steps we count to 10. She is getting pretty good at it.

Since our first meal together, Julia has been asking for a hamburger at McDonald's. She actually didn't eat much of the hamburger, but polished off the french fries and ice cream with gusto.

Today's checklist:
1. Complete Adoption Paperwork
2. Buy new shoes... must be pink
3. Buy a new Barbie. Forget the Chinese Barbie, she wants blond, blue eyed Barbie
4. Eat at McDonald's

We are now officially Julia's Forever Family.

Barbies, McDonald's and Pink Shoes. What more could a girl want. Lucy has a doll just like Julia does. She got it last year at Christmas and still plays with it daily.

Congratulations! I can't wait to meet her. Oh! And for her to meet the rest of your family. That will be wonderful!
