We were served a generous helping of our son’s rich Chinese culture today. Though it obviously wasn’t our main motivator in bringing them, I’m thankful to have our girls along for this incredible opportunity to see a unique region of the world.
We spent another full day in Beijing with our travel group today, three more adoptive families from our agency joining our ranks. (For those counting it brings our total to nine.) And what a fantastic group they are! In addition to the five families from the south, we now have a family from Indiana, one from Nebraska, and one from northern California, each on the cusp of meeting their children. It’s a blessing to be in the company of like-minded people who truly understand why you’re completely crazed, and sometimes inexplicably morph into a giddy, hopping maniac at the realization that you’ll finally get to meet your son IN TWO DAYS.
That’s right, two days! Tomorrow, we board an early flight to Zhengzhou. The following day we will meet our boy. ((at that, let us enjoy a moment of revered silence please))
Here are some of today’s best snapshots:
holy quadriceps, we’re going to be sore
