Good Day Today, Even Better Tomorrow

Hello All,

Today was a wonderful day.  We were waiting for the boys visas to be issued so we went to a Safari Park in Guangzhou (read zoo).  It was a very nice zoo full of pandas.  10 to be exact.  Never seen so many in one place.  We even got to see a couple of animals I have never seen before, but I won’t bore you with that.  The D-man did get to feed the Giraffes which in and of itself is pretty cool.  When we returned to the hotel we got the visas and then proceeded to pack.  Dear Lord, that is a lot of packing.   Tomorrow is the day we start our return home to Madison, MS from China.  We will first fly from Here-Guangzhou to Beijing then hit the flight from There to Chicago.  The flight will be over 12 hours.  I would like as much prayer as those of you in blog land can muster with two toddlers.  We will stay the night in Chicago as suggested from friend who has been through the Chinese adoption process twice.  Then on Saturday we will make our flight will be make it to Jackson at 2:30 from Houston.  We are so ready to be home.  See you soon.  We left as 3, we return as 5.

    Can. Not. Wait to see you and the boys!!! Remember the saying that has gotten you through everything “it’s only a phase. Its only a phase.” And I’m talking about the flight! But it works for everything. 🙂
    The flights may seriously suck…really. But, know that going in and remind yourself your almost done. And even the suckiest memory (be it long flights, lay-overs, natural disasters…..) become part of the most treasured love story you’ll ever tell. Drink in those eyes that don’t understand and need you more than you care to be needed….they won’t be the same eyes that look at you in 6 months. And you’ll wish you could remember more. It’s ok to hate every moment of the flight….as long as you drink it in. There is a strange pain when you leave China…I think we feel that seperation pain for our little ones who are leaving everything they’ve ever known. Yes, drink it in.
