Guess Where We Are

We arrived in Beijing on the 27th and spent two days touring the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Beijing International Jade Factory, and experience a tea ceremony at a tea house. 

We flew into our new daughter's province last night and will be united with her in 4 1/2 hours.  So many emotions are overtaking me right now.  Wondering what my sweet baby girl must be feeling this morning as she says goodbye to those who have cared for her and the little building that has been her "home" for her entire life.  We know that so much love and opportunities await her future, but she doesn't know this; and even if she did, it doesn't change that she still has to grieve her homeland and caregivers. 

Please pray that her heart will be open to receive all the love we have for her and that her fears will be relieved quickly. 

Pictures of our union with our sweet Hope Xin'e will be posted soon.
