The China adoption process has a 24 hour waiting period before the adoption is finalized.  So, the next day we all returned to the Social Welfare Office and I said “yes” to being hers forever.  It was one of the easiest “yeses” I’ve ever said.

I think it was a bit strange for all of the kids to be back in the same room that they were in just the day before when their lives changed so drastically.  Cora was pretty clingy to me but I didn’t mind at all.  She even preferred me over the orphanage director who she had seen a few times.
