And then there were three...

Sorry for not posting sooner, but in addition to taking care of the newest member of the family, we've been having major internet problems. Miss Poppy Han-Yeong is sitting on my lap as I type, so I don't have time for details, but I know everyone is dying for pics, so here they are -

Here we are, our last picture as a family of 2, waiting for Poppy's plane to land...
My baby, finally in my arms...
Our first family picture...
Could she be any more beautiful?
This is how we spent most of our first day together- napping.
Poppy's first breakfast...
Our first morning together...


And those are just from the first day. Lots more pictures to come and I'll try to find time to post the details of our first couple of days together. Thanks for all of the sweet comments and well-wishes, everyone's love and support means so much to us.

Cliff and I are SO happy to see a family from our VN agency get a baby. We are so happy for you guys, can't wait to hear more once you have a little time. Plus of course more photos!

Yay!! Thanks for posting photos, while I have only recently been following your story, I was anxiously awaiting this post. I'm so happy for you all!

Christy said...

Your pictures are so beautiful, they made me tear up and I'm new here. New, but still so incredibly happy for you!

I found your blog through a link from someone else's (I can't remember now whose) so I feel like I've cheated and skipped to the end of the story. But of course, this is also the beginning. A very beautiful beginning.

Amanda and Marc and Poppy...I am so sorry I didn't get to witness the beautiful arrival of your family at the airport but I did receive the darling photog of Poppy holding onto her mom from Natalie. It radiates love ...that's why I've been showing it off to anyone who will take a peek at my phone and they are never disappointed!

With Lots of Love Tammy PS... How perfect do the two of you look in the nursery?!

Beautiful pics. For a minute, I thought we were both in Korea at the same time! Poppy is lovely.
Thank you so much for your comment on my blog - it's so nice to know that our bottle situation is not uncommon. It's so bizarre that we're going through this at basically the same exact time. Feel free to contact me directly through my website, ahimsa-creations.net
(I'm paranoid about posting my email online, but you can find it on my website)
Congrats and thanks again!!!
