Greetings from Ohio and Charlie, Adoption # 14

Hello Amanda and Nannies!  

We are typically overdue in our correspondence but wanted to write and let you know that we are doing fine.  Charlie (Gabriel) is growing into a fine young man full of curiosity, energy and boyish mischief.  We recall your asking long ago when we would finally travel to China to pick up Charlie because he had figured out how to move the sandal shelf at the old apartment over to the door and unlock the door.  Well that was a sign of things to come as he's always exploring new places and looking for new adventures.  Note the attached "warrior" picture…fits him to a T.  

He's doing well in kindergarten and becoming a great reader.  We've moved quickly from The Wiggles and Busytown on to Superman, Star Wars and anything dinosaur related.  We just started a small home renovation project and soon he'll have a room of his own…which he's very excited about.

We talk about you, the nannies and the babies quite often and are excitedly following the progress at the new home.  Looks like an incredible place and hopefully before too much more time passes we can return for a visit.  

All our love,
Steve, Karen, Lucy, Henry, Esme and Charlie

Glad to see Charlie doing well! He was one of the 3 amigos, along with our Michael.
