I finally got an email from Kristy! here is what she says:

Hello everybody!!!!!! First thing is first......EVERY SINGLE THING I SAY IN THIS EMAIL GO STRAIGHT TO THE GLORY OF GOD!!!! We have prayed and so many others have prayed over the transition of Franceska into our arms, and I have to tell all of you that we have had nothing but one blessing after another!!! I am not kidding every step of this journey has been blessed, from the minute we left we have been astounded at the way Jesus Christ has completely cleared the path of any obstacles or detours!!!! PRAISE HIM AND THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS , THOUGHTS, AND WELL WISHES!!

The internet in Beijing was sooo slow that no pictures were being sent from anywhere, we are now in Nanchang, wher the us and i have to el you when we were told to cm downstairs, the minute we walked into the lobby we saw her, we knew it was her and when she was handed to me, it was incredible, she just stared at us and after about 3 minutes I raised her up and brought her down to my face and she opened her mouth and kissed me right on the lips!!! It was as if she wasy saying Hi Mommy what took you so long????? Her daddy took her and she never waivered she knew exactly that he was her daddy!!!! This cld as rom the very sat kept us completely entertained , she has been called the most smiley baby in the group!!!! And they are right!! I have to tell you tha she has this most precious peculiar little dimple on her lower left cheek when she smiles ...it is absolutely precious!!!! I know all moms think this, but sheis beautiful!!! She does have a temper when something just isnt going her way, but oh well we have ruined so many before her we will just ruin her too!!! LOL

She is a fantastic sleeper . aAnd just so darn happy!! It is all God I tell you!!! She has only cried onetime and it wasnt until last night just because she was over tired!! It is soooooo hot here and the babies and the parents are just miserable outside and Im thinking the desitin is gonna be for momy and daddy! lol

Just sitting here typing this I am crying because I just cant tell you what this has been like with our Franceska, she loves us as much as we love her if that is even possible!!!! I am overwhelmed spontaneously all day long because of the blessing of it!!!! She is gorgeous!!!! We have made lifelong friends here , it is just amazing!!!

She sings, dadadada and mamamama and I started singing You are my sunshine to her like I used to do Astrud , Jade, Lily and Rayn and let me tell you she is OURs she just starts dancing with her shoulders!!!! She only gives me her kisses open mouth and all but adores her daddy. They are out walking the hallway right now, Frank is incredible, and yes I combust without warning!!

We cannot wait to show her off to everyone at home, we have been taking so many movies to share with all of you. When we get home please dont get your feelings hurt if we dont just hand her over, please be patient with us, although she has bonded so great to us, it is still so important for her to know that she can trust us. We have waited 5 years to have her in our arms and to be honest I am probably going to be selfish sally!!!! Im just praying that all of you have patience and understanding with me especially, she will be bombarded by people that already love her but that she does not know, all in good time she will be climbing all over all of you!!!!

I sincerely and truly love all of you , both of us do thank you so much for your love. There will be hundreds of pictures when we get home that we will share!!!!
