Today we leave Beijing and head to Zhengzhou. Our son will be there tomorrow to meet us! The fact that we are this close is at once exciting and terrifying. We have enjoyed these days in Beijing and think it is genius of our adoption agency to plan these extra 2 days. We finally feel better and are not as exhausted and overwhelmed by the new sights, smells, and food. The past two days have been full of amazing sights, but the push is definitely for tomorrow. Looking at our family pictures in these past 2 days just reminds us that someone’s missing! It’s time to get him.
We have been enjoying getting to know the other families in our travel group. Yesterday while hiking the Great Wall, we were sharing how God has provided for our adoptions…it is simply beyond what I can describe. We are all here, welcoming our new children, and each and every one of us is surrounded by beautiful communities who have prayed and sacrificed for these children, too.
Tomorrow the beautiful, hard, worth-it work starts! Thank you is not enough, but I still say it…thank you, for your love and prayers and gifts and excitement! We will post an update as soon as we are able either tomorrow or the next day, depending on how Rowan is doing! We love you all!
The girls have made friends with some other sweet girls in our group! Again, super thankful to have such a great group!
