Giving and Receiving Ceremony
Here we are as we wait for the G&R Ceremony.
This man was their version of the magistrate over the providence. He is handing us our official adoption papers.
The G&R Ceremony is where we officially adopt our daughter in the eyes of the Country of Vietnam. It was a nice little ceremony. Mike had to give a speech thanking the Vietnamese people for our beautiful daughter. It was all very touching and heartfelt.
Mike signing the paperwork. The man next to Mike is their version of a commissioner.
Me completing the paperwork.
This man is over the orphanage services. As he read over the paperwork he came over to Mike. He pointed to Mike's birthday and then pointed to himself.  Then he pointed to Mike's birth year and then pointed to himself. He had the exact birthday as Mike.
