Hi I am writing this from Hong Kong, one night’s sleep away from returning home. I decided to put up a Quick Takes even though Jen is not. I have been starved of blogging since arriving on mainland China where even wordpress is blocked by “the Great Firewall of China.” It’s been horrible not to be able to keep up with others’ blogs. (Hi Kassie, Eli, Priest’s Wife, Jen A!)
Four months of telling God “No” to another adoption
Fourteen months of piles of paperwork and agonizing waiting
Paying out thousands of dollars to two governments, one adoption agency, and an airline
20 hours of traveling by economy
5 days of jetlag
Many, many tears of “what are we doing?!?”
One more orphan having a Mama and Baba forever and always who love him to the moon and back makes it all worth it.
Merry Christmas and May the New Year bring you blessings and great Joy!
