We had an incredibly busy day here in Beijing. We are really enjoying the culture, sights, and food (except for one particularly strange pork dish we just had) I think our guide likes the fact that we are loving the different foods. We first went to the Forbidden City toured and learned all about the different dynasties and Emperors. I will confess I knew close to nothing about all of this before today. Then we went to lunch and walked the steps of the Great Wall.... Exhausting at best. I was surprised by the amount of people at both places, and the steps of the Great Wall are tall and steep. We had to stop a few times and catch our breath. The view was absolutely amazing.
Most importantly this is my LAST post without a picture of Mina!!!!! We had to pinch ourselves a few times today... it seems very surreal that we will be meeting our daughter tomorrow. We are racked with nervous excitement. Every time I saw a small child today, I almost teared up.
Please keep our little Mina in your thoughts and prayers, as she has no idea that her life is about to change, Please pray that she accepts and bonds to us quickly. We are all about to fall over tired right now. Tomorrow is sure to be one of the most amazing days of our lives.... We will keep you posted.
