Tuma, Party of 6- Day 5

Today, we went back to the Civil Affairs office to finalize the adoption. It was pretty uneventful, just some paperwork and a couple of simple interviews and boom, she's a Tuma! We came back to the hotel and played for a while at the hotel playground. Charlotte just paced and paced and paced with a very serious expression on her face. The kids were hilarious! Ethan accidentally fell down in front of Charlotte and she smiled for the first time. So then all three big kids were racing around "falling" in front of Charlotte to make her smile. It was so adorable. They just love her so much!

After her nap, we went to the pool. I was able to get her to come in the pool with me and she seemed to enjoy it. She just splashed her hands and watched the kids be crazy.

I'm feeling pretty sleepy so I'm going to keep this short and just add lots of pics!


  1. Yay! It's official! That's awesome--and so are all the pictures. What a beautiful family you all are! It's wonderful how much the older 3 kids love their precious little sister! God bless and protect you all. Love and hugs

  2. Ahh! That last picture with the two of you!!!! LOVE THESE PICTURES!!!
