We made it to Guangzhou!!! It has been a loooooong day,for the past 25 hours I felt like a 10 year old who needed her Mommy to pick her up at sleep away camp. But the second we entered the Beijing airport I felt much better. We really love China, it's efficient chaos. It is beautiful and I feel like it is part of me now because it is part of my girls. I am not a world traveler, I wish I were. I would love to see every corner of this beautiful earth someday, now if I could do it without air travel and still sleep in my own bed every night... I would be all over it. We are still broken hearted that Mina is not here to experience China with us, especially now that I realize the travel warning had a much louder bark than bite. ( We received some pretty loud "barking" from the China adoption center) I am sure there is a reason that we changed our minds last minute and Mina is home having a great time with her Grandparents and brothers and sister. This will be Finn's one and only chance to be an only child and to bond with us... I am sure that will be a very precious time. It all seems a bit surreal, after months of waiting we will be handed our baby girl tomorrow. What will she be like, will she be frightened, or numb, or bond quickly. We already know we will love her to pieces. If you are following along please say a prayer for Finn's little heart, I am sure she will be very confused tomorrow, please pray that God fills her heart with his love and that she bonds quickly to us. Can't wait to post again,,,, with photos of Finn!!! We meet her at 2:30 tomorrow (so 2:30 in the morning US time).
Collin, Kobi, Jackson & Mina, we miss you like crazy already! I am the luckiest Mommy in the whole world!
