Sorry my posts have been a bit fewer and farther in between. Here in Guangzhou... the days sort of all stream together.
Tomorrow we leave for home. HOME. Yet another something Grace has never experienced before. What a bitter-sweet day it will be.
We CAN'T WAIT to get home see our B, K and D. We can't wait for something other than this Fred Flintstone bed. We can't wait to brush our teeth from water from a faucet instead boiled water.
And we REALLY can't wait for Grace to meet her big brothers and big sister. and for her to meet her FAMILY... Grandma, Grandpa, Nana, Uncles and Aunts, and cousins!
Still, a very real and large part of our heart is very sad to leave China. We are very sad to say goodbye to our friends (more like family) that we have traveled with these past 15 days. 15 days that sort of feels like a lifetime. But, mostly, we are sad to leave the beautiful homeland of our daughter.
Tomorrow we leave the hotel here in Guangzhou at 6:45 am. We will arrive home at approximately 11 pm EST. That means (if everything goes smoothly) we will have traveled doorstep to doorstep for about 30 hours.
With a 17 month old.
OH... Benedryl. PLEASE be good to us.
So, until we are home... I'll leave you with a short little video of our little walker.
What an honor it is be her mother.
