It's Official!

It was a busy day today (Thursday). Our guide Peter took us to sign papers to officially adopt Audrey. So as of today she is ours for good! We had to go to another place for the notary after that. Our guide Peter is super and he is very experienced in doing this, which makes it really nice. After that we came back to the hotel and while Audrey took a nap with Paige in the room, I worked on paperwork for 2 hours with the other adoptive families. We thought we were done, but then we went to do Audrey's medical exam which is standard procedure. She was fussy after that and I think we were all tired for a while. I also think we are all still trying to learn each other.

Tonight we had our best time of bonding with her yet. The pictures posted are from that time. She was laughing and smiling which she had not really done with us yet. It was a great time! Very sweet!
