More Claire pictures from Gotcha Day!

Claire has been mesmerized with the photo album we made her! Notice, Jesse, she is looking at the page with you on it! She can't wait to meet you!
She sat on our bed for most of the day & just sat & played. She is barely sitting up by herself! Look at the wild hair!
Shortly after being placed in my arms. She loved the toy giraffe we showed her!
PS...The beds here are as hard as the countertops...no kidding. We hope tp be more used to it tonight! Tomorrow we tour the city of Changsha. We will post in the evening after Claire goes to bed!
PPS.....Most of the food here even Gretchen won't eat! We are all starting to crave American food...& it's only day 4!

Jesse, we love you so very much & Can't wait to see you. Hope you are feeling better & hope you get to go to school Tuesday! We love you!

Mom, Dad, & Claire

Gretchen!
Claire song is beautiful and your Gotch Photos brought tears to my eyes!(of course) Cherish every moment of being in her province and quiet hootel room time, Steve and I still miss that time. It was the best week of my life! Take care and congrats!

She looks so regal propped up against the pillows in her pink outfit. And you look so at ease and comfortable with her. I know you can't wait to get her home.
Keep the pictures and updates comming.
Love,
