Last few days in Guangzhou.

We have had a great last few days.

The other Lifeline families came and it was so nice to have the camaraderie. We have already made some great new friends.

Zoe and Milo really enjoyed the Pearl River boat cruise.

I just love this city.

However, I also can say, with total certainty, that there has definitely been a feeling of finality in this trip. Shaun and I both have felt that we can sense this will be our last trip here for awhile-at least where adoptions are concerned.

We still hope for the opportunity to bring all our children back here one day, or to come back for mission work. But, it’s hard to describe, something just feels different this time.

We both feel the desire to help orphaned children from a different direction now, in a different way. We are not sure exactly what that will look like, but we are listening and waiting.

We took our oath before the US Consulate today, so we are now official state side.

We finished it off by taking his picture with the little children statue…

This little boy will never walk alone again.

From the mama that is ready to be with all her kiddos under one roof again soon,
