Today, many CHI families are in China experiencing what is called the "Gotcha Day." Gotcha Day is the day that families who have traveled to China for their little ones actually get to meet and hold them for the first time. That day, the families are allowed to take the little ones back to their hotels for 24 hours. After that period, the families then formalize the adoption, agreeing to always care for the child as their own through further mounds of "red tape" provided by the Chinese government.
I sit and marvel as I read through other family posts and I am joyful for those families who are experiencing this wonderful day with their forever child. Congrats to all of you. I wish you well.
