Got 'em!!!!!!

We got 'em and boy are they 

We were at the civil affairs office with many other families,
many had already received their children,
everyone was doing very well.

We waited with 2 other families,
chatting while we got more and more anxious -
then we saw them! 
The walked right in to the building -
Griggsy first,
then Hagan.

They both started off very nervous -
but warmed up quickly!

Hagan was very scared but when we pulled out the 
photo album we had sent them
and I showed him our photos
he calmed down and relaxed.

Their foster mother must have prepared them well. 
What a blessing!!!  

stickers and toy cars made the situation bearable to them.

We finally were able to leave,
stopped by the pharmacy to get Hagan motion sickness patches -
seems he got car sick on his way to us. 

Then we made a quick stop at the local Walmart.

And on the way -
sweet Griggsy fell fast asleep!
Ohhhh so sweet!!!!

Hagan was a champ through the store -
though we knew he was hungry.

We got back to the room and cooked up some noodles for the boys.
That was hilarious!! 
But they were happy and we laughed and laughed!

The only time either have them have been upset was 
when we changed their clothing.

Hagan got a bath -
and was very nervous - 
but the trust building has begun. 
He relaxed, played with the bubbles 
and had fun!

We are so incredibly blessed!

They are two beautiful, amazing boys!
