It was so difficult to say goodbye. I had dreaded this moment...and it was just plain hard! :-(
We were told to be in the lobby of our hotel at 9:00. We slept like rocks and got up and skyped the kiddos. It was sooo great to hear from them and SEE them!! We ate breakfast at the hotel..pancakes, bacon and orange juice. Not quite like ours, but close enough.
Our first impression of China is that it is truly amazing... Rich in culture, and love the architecture. Tomorrow we will travel the Great Wall and go to an Acrobatics show. We are completely exhausted, but just so excited and grateful for the opportunity to learn about Lily's birth country. Please continue to pray for us. (Doug is doing well...he's asleep and it's only 8:00 p.m.) I am ready to join him.
Good night from Beijing!
