our son, William Michael Yousheng.
Well, it was a bit rough at the start with many tears on William's part when we first met him. When we walked in the conference room the little guy was already lying on the floor crying very hard. With the help of a small Lightning McQueen car I had with me and some M & M's the tears stopped. William bonded with Dan right away, which I wasn't surprised about. After only 3 hours with him we are seeing his personality already immerge, he's all boy, he's very polite...says 'please' and 'thank you.' He calls us Mommy and Daddy and is quite facinated with Grace. I'm so proud of Grace, all the attention has been on William and she's been patient and so sweet to her little brother. I would have more pictures but we've been pretty busy. All I can say is thank you for your prayers, I feel them at work. We are so grateful that he's part of our family now.

(((HUGS))) I'm so excited for you. Today has been a day of tears in my home (for me) and yet as I read your post, looked at Grace, Dan and William happy tears filled my heart this afternoon.

I'm soooo happy for you. Oh How I can't wait to meet him. I realized this afternoon that by the time you get home - I will be starting my new job (assuming I take it..hehehe) and I will not get to see you at Kitt... We will have to get together some other time.

((((HUGS))) to your entire family.

Gail said...

Tears, tears and more happy tears.
William is just precious!
He seems to be doing well from the pictures!
I can tell Grace is one awesome sister.
My prayers continue for a smooth transition.
God Bless you and your beautiful family.
