We met Mei two months ago



Two months ago on the Mothers Day there was the bell ring in our hotel room in Nanchang China. And we knew it is our daughter. I have received the best Mother's day present I could ask for - our Mei.

She has adjusted to our family very quickly and blended in like she was born here. Since day one she fell in love with her brother Marco. Marco is also being very good brother to her. And yes her adoption was the "Dream Adoption" that you read about.

She had made good progress in last 2 months. She moved from fear of our dogs to loving them, she learned that we are their mommy and daddy. She loves her brother. She loves bathtubs and water in general. And boy she eats. Also big thank you foster mom for your work on potty training her. Mei at her 17 months old is making most of the days with dry underwear  (we still do diapers at night and naps). She also loves music and loves to dance.
I never can have a bite of food, prepare food or work with food without her demanding some.
She lives to please us - at least that is what it looks like to me.
Since coming home she learned these words:
  • Up
  • Momma
  • Daddy
  • Hugo (our dog)
  • Lola (the other dog)
  • Hi
  • By
  • All done
  • Ahoj (Czech word for Hi)
  • Halo (Czech word for Hi on the phone)
 We are in love with our little Mei Ann and are very thankful that she became part of our family.
And for some reason we can not catch her smiling on pictures, but she does a lot of smiling/giggling.
