Sarah Kate's Gotcha Day

We arrived in Nanchang Saturday night. 
This province (Jiangxi) has Sunday Gotcha Days,
and on Sunday, May 19th, Sarah Kate's orphanage director brought 
her directly to our room!
Talk about special delivery!

The orphanage director stayed in the room for 
almost an hour, telling us what he could about Sarah Kate
and answering our questions. 

Overall, she has handled the transition well. She has cried some but also laughed. 
She fell asleep easily but has whimpered through the night. 

This morning we will be busy finalizing the adoption, stopping at the civil affairs office, the notary, 
 and the police station to apply for her passport. 

She is such a doll and has such a gentle personality. 
What a blessing to be allowed the opportunity to raise one more
treasure for the Lord's glory!
