A new twist

Chase has confirmed what we thought was true. Chloe and Chance are TWINS!

We have suspected this for some time, as Chloe thought so but I was curious to see if Chase would know. And he does. They are twins. They are 13.

You can see the bond between the two. It's incredible. He's just like her, bouncing off the walls, like a mini mad man! We may be looking at ADHD meds- ha ha! I hope we can handle the 2 of them:)

Chase is quieter but just as bonded, it's fun to hear them chattering back and forth. Lu Fung, Lu Kai, Lu Fei blah, blah, blah. Chance is just as eager and willing to accept momma hugs, and kisses and when I tell him I love him he says "sank you." It's really cute. Lu Fei is quieter but not adverse to me either. He keeps testing me to see if I really am unable to speak Chinese as he tells me things and I am looking at him like he is nuts.

Chloe is being a moody teen and wasn't helping us to get a meal, so we are now eating Italian to pay her back for not wishing to help. It's not really easy as we are quite the amazing sight apparently, we went to the first restaurant and instead of telling us they weren't open till 5:30 pm they chose to let us sit there and stared at us and questioned the kids if we were really their parents. We left, they must have known we were not thrilled as we tried to pay for the soda we were able to get and they wouldn't take our money.
We did some of our adoption paperwork today, the signing of official documents and the boys signed saying they wanted to keep US:) PHEWWW, not that we couldn't tell. They are the happiest 3 kids I have ever seen.

I just keep looking at them and being so amazed, they are together, the Min sibs, and they are staying that way for good. They are adorable. They are enjoying some Cola now and trying to play their Nintendo and PSP games.

Chance already knows "let's go", I doubt these guys take long to catch on to English at all. We are just thrilled with them, we think we'll keep them as well:)
We just taught them we are not Auntie and Uncle. we are mom and dad. Chloe was laughing as they keep forgetting and calling us the wrong thing. The waitress is having a blast figuring out who of the kids speaks English and to answer in English and who doesn't, so she needs to speak to them in Chinese. We are a real riot here:)
That's all for now, things are good, I'll save that "police" story for another day, and no mom, do not call the consulate, we are fine!
Enjoy the pics of our 3 together- we sure are enjoying them. God is SO GOOD!!

Amazing!! I have been praying for this reunion since you picked up Chloe. Seeing them all together brings tears of joy to my eyes. Everyone looks so happy!!

Once you are home and everything is final, I would love to hear more about big brother and how you got him home. I've read all your blog posts but would love to hear more.

Praying for a safe journey...

Marjorie said...

They do look just alike!!!!


I have chills all over.

Fairy tales really do come true!

You all need to write a book, if the kids are OK with it of course! Seriously, though the first printing would no doubt sell out!!!

I am so glad EVERYONE on all sides did what was RIGHT and TRUE.

Nancy said...

Cool! I was going to comment last night about how much Chance and Chloe look like each other (they all do, for that matter), but them especially. It crossed my mind that they could be twins. How fun!

Donna said...

The surprises just keep coming and coming!

I love seeing the kids together again. I can only imagine how much of a culture shock this will be for them but they're together and that's sure to make it all so much easier. Chloe will be a big help too, I'm sure.

It is also nice to see that Chase was able to confirm your your thoughts about Chance and Chloe are twins. How exciting for you and them.
