What a difference a day makes. Well, 4 hours actually. Approximately 4 hours and 12 minutes after I posted my last entry, we received word that we had been matched with a very cute little boy. Actually, our agency rep didn't say he was cute, we just noticed that he was. Come to think of it, she did say he was cute.
His name is Wei Jian Tong. He was born Aug 27th, 2005 and has a repaired cleft lip and unrepaired cleft palate. He is currently living in the Tianjin Children's Welfare Institute and continues to get cuter every day. He doesn't know that we are on our way to get him, but we'll get there just as fast as we can.
According to the report we received, "Tong Tong is a very well-behaved child. Whenever it’s time to eat, he always quietly sits on his stool and waits for the nanny to feed him. He never cries. Wei Jian Tong particularly likes to watch TV, and he especially enjoys listening to music. Whenever there’s a musical program on TV, Tong Tong will immediately focus his attention, stare with wide eyes, and quietly watch TV. Sometimes he will hum along to the beat of the music. Sometimes it even seems like he involves himself in the artistic conception of the music, jumping right in and forgetting himself."
How wonderful! He is perfect for our family, and I think he's ready to play ball with his daddy!
