ASP.NET WS pass XMLNode to XMLDocument

In an ASP.NET WS, an XMLNode is passed in a function that is supposed to create an XML Document with the XMLNode and process it in the WS. I try different things like "XMLDocument.InnerXML =XMLNode.InnerXML", 'XMLDocument.AppendChild(XMLNode)", etc...but keep getting the following error:

The document does not have a root element

Please advise syntactically how to make the XML document take the XML node without the "root" error.
