Will Hudson Is an American Citizen!

Our past few days have been easy and fun.  We have spent time swimming, walking through the park, shopping, and just enjoying Will Hudson.  Tomorrow is our last full day here.  We are so excited about coming home and seeing Kelsey and Ella Grace! 

Today was a big day for us.  Will Hudson became a US Citizen this morning.  We were with a group of about 10 families or so from different agencies and we all took an oath together.  We then came back to the hotel for the ever famous Red Couch picture.  All the adopted children get dressed up in Chinese clothing for special pictures.  Check out the picture of Will Hudson wondering what all the fussing is about.  It was a little crazy, but fun to see everyone all dressed up.

It was also a sad day because we had to say good-bye to many of our new friends.  We have put a picture of Will Hudson and his buddy, Josh in this post.  All but 3 families from our group are leaving tonight or sometime tomorrow.  Our consulate appointment was a day later than the rest because Will Hudson was over age 2 and we had to wait for TB test results.

Tomorrow we are heading to the zoo to see the Pandas!  We will probably post once more and then our blogging days are over.


  1. Okay you can come home now. I'd really love to hug your neck and get my hands on that cutie pie :) love you guys!!!

  2. Sad that your blogging days will be over, but can't wait to meet you sweet boy!!

  3. Macy says WIll Hudson looks like Ella Grace and your family! Can't believe you have a little boy now! He looks like so much fun. Can't wait to meet him. Safe travels. We love you!

  4. He seems to be doing so great! I love the RED COUCH and how he is the calm amongst the storm! So, we need to get a hold of him and wild him up a bit...just a little! I'm ready to talk to you and hear the details. I'm ready to hear what it's like for you being a boy mama! Still just so thrilled and excited for you! Love ya.

  5. Okay, I'm itching for you guys to return and get settled. We MUST get together so you can tell us everything. I promise not to bombard you as soon as you get home but be looking for an email in a few weeks. Maybe you guys could come over for dinner at our house and bring the kids.

  6. the red couch makes me so happy
