You have to do it. You have to dress your child in Chinese clothing and take pictures on the red couch at the White Swan Hotel. Hundreds of families before us have sat on the famous couches for a photo. And we were no exception. Noah was handsome in silk, Micah was the helpful big brother (no Chinese clothes for my American boy!).
And you have to try to take a picture of all those newly adopted children on the red couch. This was humorous with children rolling over or refusing to cooperate. Noah was fine until Mama tried to step out of the frame. Then we had total meltdown! This is the best shot we got of the children.
