I regret to inform all the other prospective adoptive parents out there that the cutest child in Vietnam is already spoken for. I thought she was precious from the first picture we saw, but Reagan seems to get more and more beautiful every day! On top of that, she is a very happy and easy baby thus far. Everywhere we go, men and women stop us to touch and ask about Reagan "Vietnam baby?" and "How old?" "Oh, lucky baby!" they all say, but without a doubt we are the lucky ones.



Today we had our interview with the U.S. consulate here in HCMC - the first step towards getting Reagan's visa to come home. Everything went reasonably smoothly, but the best news is that the embassy in Hanoi now does exit interviews 5 days a week instead of just Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, which means... we might get to come home early! We're planning on flying to Hanoi on Wednesday, and if we can get an appointment for Thursday, we'll be home Friday night! We have loved our time here in Vietnam but we do miss home and I really miss Alyssa and Parker, so pray that all will continue to go well!

She's pretty cute, I must say. Those Ninh Thuan girls are all good lookin' little things. :) Elisabeth's little Noah is pretty cute too....so, maybe you should be arranging something...! :-) Hope you will be coming home soon.

WOW!! That would be record time if you came home after only two weeks!! I hope that happens for you because the third week is definatly the hardest!! She's adorable and you indeed are the lucky ones! I loved the "baby Vietnam?" comments, and they all LOVE to ask, don't they?! People would ask "baby Vietnam?" and then follow it up with "looks like Daddy!" Can you believe that?! We thought it was hilarious!! Have a safe flight to Hanoi and a speedy rest of the process!!

Alyssa was so excited to see Dan holding Reagan in the carrier. We went to Baja today to meet Papa and Tilly and she wanted to know if Mama was going to be there, I just don't think she gets it =) Love you

That is wonderful that you will probably get to come home early! She is beautiful. . . even more so than when we saw her 2 months ago. She just gets cuter and cuter. . . if that's possible.
