Introducing ~ Aiden Nathaniel Zigang Zeigler~
I don't even know where to begin. We decided on naming his middle name Nathaniel which means "A gift from God", which is so true. I will write more in depth tomorrow but when we went to get him he was the first child they brought out. I looked up and there he was. I couldn't believe it, I thought we would have waited longer once we got to the meeting place. He didn't cry one time. He came to all of us. He didn't show alot of emotion at first but it only took about 1/2 hour for his personality to start shining through.
He laughs heartily and eats very good. We went to eat at Lucy's tonight. He at Congee which is watery rice with maybe chicken in it and spaghetti. Taylor is just overly in love with him. I said to her before we went to get him, this is our last hour of being a family of 3... she said you mean a family of 4 soon to be 5. She is just amazing at her thoughtfulness.
When we got back to our room Aiden (GONG GONG) just loved his stacking cups. One of our friends we met reached for him and he came to me. Then Chad reached for him and he went right to him. It was like he just knew. That is what our guide said also. We did meet Ms. Tang and the assitant director Ms. Cheng. They were extremly nice and gave us alot of information about his personality. They said he will take things from other kids and that he is very strong even though he is small. He has had fruit, congee and bannanas.
Right now he is on the bed throwing ball back and forth with Chad and Taylor. If I could have asked for a more perfect day I don't know what more I could have asked for. God really has blessed us. I am so happy it is beyond words. I wish our family could be here. Taylor said "Wouldn't it be nice if grandma was here"... soon everyone will be able to meet our little guy.
I have little video clips but I can't tell if they work on my blog or not. I will write more later. He is just so great and you can tell he is so happy which makes us happy.
