We completed our adoption yesterday! According to both China and America, Abigail Mei Zhifu is officially ours!! And once she steps on American soil, she will be an American citizen. The US Consulate doesn't allow cameras, so we couldn't take any photos. But what it included was a pledge and the final paperwork. It was very special to say the pledge (I cried through it), which said that we have completed all of the necessary legal paperwork to adopt Abigail. She is now ours!!
The night before, we personally pledged to Abigail that even though she was going to become and American citizen, we will honor her Chinese heritage and raise her in it. She is Chinese-American, and we celebrate her culture and heritage!
Welcome to our family, Abigail Mei Zhifu Robinson!! We love you with all of our hearts!!!!
Here are pictures we took before we left the hotel for the US Consulate!
