Skype call #3

We had our third Skype call on Friday evening. This one lasted 40 minutes. Our girl is slowly becoming more comfortable with us. When discussing our trip to Taiwan with the translator, our girl seemed very accepting of us coming to Taiwan to spend time with her. We haven't yet discussed anything about life in America, though I'm sure that will come in time.

Several things tell me that she's going to fit into our family well. First, she loves food! Both Jeff and I love to try new foods and it sounds like Cin-Ru is a pretty good eater. She even bought stinky tofu with her own money. Second, she prefers cooler weather. Of course, cooler weather in Taiwan is 80 degrees. Third, she seems to like going out and visiting parks and museums. Jeff and I stay home a lot but we also love to explore.

Our next Skype call is in six days! The only downside to multiple Skype calls is that each one makes me more impatient to travel to Taiwan. I want to start showing our girl just how much we already care about her. I want us to start working toward being a family. These Skype calls help her to feel more comfortable with us and we are succeeding at that. But I want to get to know her in person. Hopefully soon.

Now if we can just get the mayor to sign our adoption agreement...

Sending up prayers that the adoption papers are signed very soon so that you can bring your daughter home.

It's awesome that they are scheduling so many skype calls for you! I'm glad of that and super glad that she is slowly opening up to you.

I guess you'll be looking into parks in the area, eh?
