Xian China trip
I've been in Xian since Saturday night with my friend Mark from Maine. We met in Nanchang, Jiangxi China in 2004 when we were adopting our Sarah Hope. His wife Donna is at home with 5 year old Rose.
What an amazing experience it has been to stay at the Starfish Foster Home in Xian as Mark and Lily continue to bond. We are scheduled to leave Monday and head to Guangzhou for the US Consulate stuff. We've met people from South Africa, Denmark, Sweden and England during our stay here. Great to see so many people volunteering to care for the least of these. 19 children (counting Lily) have now been placed into permanent homes around the world.
Maybe I can start blogging more. Great experience so far!
