Long day...Long drive!

Today (Tuesday) was a tougher day.  In the morning we drove out to Feng Cheng City where Aaron is from.  We were told that it was about a 20 minute drive, turns out it was about and hour and a half drive.  But we really enjoyed the ride, we got to see some of the country side of China.  There were lots of green rice patty crops and water buffalo.  When we got there we went to the hospital where Aaron was found.  We were very much of a spectacle for the Chinese people. Some older men were asking if we were from Russia.  It's probably not every day that they see 2 white people carrying around the most adorable Chinese boy ever :)  After we left and headed home Aaron withdrew from us and went through some grieving - it is hard to watch when you can't do anything. 

We are at a business hotel where there are not any other westerners, so the afternoons are getting LONG here at the hotel.  I think we are going to get a taxi this afternoon and get out of here for a while!
Thank you for your continued prayers, 2 more nights here and then headed to Guangzhou - our last stop on our way home!! :)

  1. That's the part of adoption that most people don't realize. It's beautiful and wonderful for us as adoptive parents, but the kids are grieving all they are losing. Praying for all of you.
