Maia is beautiful! Courage : she will soon open her heart to you. Those first moments are ever so precious but can be a little bit difficult sometimes.

I am so happy for both of you and for Maia! You guys look so happy. I know this is a dream come true and it couldn't happen to a better family. I know you feel lucky to have her, but she is also lucky to have such wonderful parents and brother. I can't wait to see all of you together as a family.

Hi, I love you so much Mommy, Daddy, and Maia! When you called on the phone, we never exepted it to be you! When I got off the trampoline, Nick, Alyssa, Cassy, and Emily came rushing out at me!!! They had presents, I got a soccer set and Devin got a lacrosse set!! Make sure you write messages all the time because we'll check every day before school!! Love and kisses to all. Love, Dylan

Yahoo, baby Maia is with her Mommy and Daddy! She is absolutely adoreable. Those pictures brought a few tears to my eyes as I can only imagine how excited you all must be. I am so happy for you all and it's finally good to hear/see some good news. The picture of you holding Maia is posted in the back office under the dreaded white board. But for once there is some good news posted. We are all very excited to meet your newest addition! I'm anxiously awaiting my first date with 2 guys at one time...look out Greenwell's here we come! Keep the photos coming. Enjoy your time in China and bonding with your beautiful daughter. Take care,
Colleen

TOO CUTE!
Exactly what Maia's shirt says...too cute!
We came right home and got on the computer. I explained what was going on in the pictures to Donovan, he smiled the biggest smile I have ever seen!!!
I am glad that Maia was fussy. We know that is a "good thing". Hang in there, it will get better. She's a very lucky girl, she now has a great family that loves her very much. Keep us posted. We love the updates!!!!

How very exciting. Loved the pictures. Your daughter is beautiful. The looks on your and Keiths face when she is in your arms says it all and is worth a thousand words. I look forward to seeing more pictures and hearing about this wonderful time. What a wonderful Christmas present. I am pretty sure this is what life is all about. Love, Elaine.
