And then there were four...

Wow....
Words cannot begin to even describe the moments. I am amazed at such an incredible journey we have taken to our son today. I'd love to post more but we are enjoying some wonderful moments on the floor together...all four of us. So photos below....














I will end this by saying Samuel Wei-Che has been just a love, he is so cute, so sweet and so very adorable. He is doing well so far, a few tears, some quite big with some loud cries, but he seems to like us a bit. He really seems to love his Daddy which is too cute to see!
Oh, and he is crawling...full speed crawling!
More to come...

Happy tears back here over the pond and I'm so grateful for what you did share, but honestly the pictures truly tell this love story better than you might know! Its all right there in the amazing pics!!

You look beautiful Mama and the photo of Daddy holding his boy is beyond precious....I think they look a bit alike!! :) Something in the expression and certainly the mutual adoration!

Then the photo of your lovely Miss who looks beyond thrilled to see her baby brother.....her expression is one of WOW and absolute glee!!

Congratulations on your sweet & darling dumpling. He DOES look like a snuggle LOVE and he's just gorgeous too!!

I hope the transition continues to go smoothly and I KNOW you have much more magic ahead!!

WOW- what a cutie! I love seeing photos of the big day and all the smiles! Congrats and enjoy. We will have to talk at some point because (from the photos) I think our boys had the same foster mom. Our Danny came home in July.

Hey, Jen, Sorry I missed you before you left. I tried to call during your layover in Newark but must have missed you. Samuel is very cute. Just to let you know this is my first post on any blog anywhere. I did not even know you could do that even though I spend my days in front of a computer. I love you guys. Have lots of fun. I look forward to your next post. The one on forty minutes is so true. I can't say how many times I have been putting Ava to sleep or sitting with her and thinking of all the things I should be doing. Thanks for the fresh perspective.

I know you are relieved and so happy for this day to come. I know the wait was long, but definitely worth it!! Please come by work....we want to meet him!!! I want Parks to meet him too! :)

Love to you all!!!

WOW! So happy for you. Brooke had the same FM. I can tell by the wooden bench! He is so cute, I'm glad to hear things are going well. My son and I would wake up every morning at 4 am and we really tired by 6pm. Never made it to the "night market". Bring home severl $100 bills (about $3 US) from Taiwan. Great gifts for Simone to give to her friends. Keep us posted.

WOW - these pictures are amazing and wonderful to see! I had to hold back a couple of sniffles. I am so happy to see them and they speak huge volumes of the happiness in the Family of Four!!! Samuel looks very content and happy! He is soooo cute. Simone picture holding him is adorable, she will be a wonderful big sister. I'm glad to hear that he is settling in. Everyone has such huge, happy, SMILES!! Now you can say the "s" word again - SON! :-) Super Son, Superb Son, Special Son, no more soon!

Going backwards (no internet this weekend-yikes)but your adventures look great and you have seen some interesting places. I give you a boatload of credit - there would be NO way tuna floss was coming in my direction either! I am not that adventureous. I'm glad to see that you ventured into NYC.

Can't wait to see more pictures of your Fantastic Family as the Fabulous FOUR!!
