It's Official!

Yesterday we signed all of the adoption paperwork and William FeiJia Contant is officially our son! He slept for most of the day as we visited several office buildings to complete the paperwork. He's a very quiet content baby, but I suspect he will learn to find his voice when he meets the rest of his siblings, especially his two little (big!) sisters who are prepared to meet his every waking need (whether he wants them met or not!)

First stop of the day- getting our family picture taken for our documents

Our travel group- ready to sign paperwork!

 Fingerprints- Liam didn't like this too much

 Making this official!

Waiting while our paperwork is being processed....

Liam, welcome to our family!

After we completed our paperwork we walked on the Bund and got to try a local favorite, Xiao Long Bao, which are steamed buns (dumplings) filled with meat or veggies and a soup broth. They were SO good. We need to find where to get these in Chicago!

We are a family! Can't wait to have five other special people join us in this picture!
Tristan, Ella, Aidan, Maeve, and Mairéad, we love you and can't wait for you to meet Liam!
