Its a Boy!

Daniel and I are now the proud parents of Wallace Shi-Wing Talley... formerly Shi-Wing Chan of Hong Kong. He is our 3rd child after Gabe (6) and Emma (4). Wallace has down syndrome and turned 6 years old on November 11, 2010 - just 9 days before we met him for the first time. He reached American soil on November 26th, where he met his brother, sister and grandmothers for the first time. He has been home 8 months and 2 days.

Today, we went to the courthouse and I took a pic of all 3 kids... sorry, pics are pretty much straight out of the camera, but you can click on them to view them bigger.
Here is the judge signing the approval!A real family... :)And a HUGE thanks to Lynn Mullins (our social worker), Dennis Ellingburg (friend and pastor) and Alice Talley (Daniel's mom) for coming to support us.... there arent words enough to say how much this meant.And I also had a few tball pics on the camera, so thought you might like to see those as well... Wallace played Challenger ball at the park this summer.batting... Emma was his running partnerI love this picture.Going home!So now, we are officially a family of five... and I can finally put pictures up... its been a struggle to have a million pictures of your family and not be able to post them.... so now I can breathe a sigh of relief and you can enjoy.... :)
