One month

One month ago Wednesday, a scared little boy had to be carried into our room in the Bell Tower Hotel in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China. He had never laid eyes on us before, and when he did that day, he didn't want to have anything to do with us.

We, on the other hand, had at least seen pictures of him and had fallen in love even though we'd never met him. If anything that day, we loved him even more.

Now, this same little boy doesn't like to be away from us. It's becoming hard to remember what life was like without him. Hopefully, he feels the same way about us.

Wow, this month sure went by fast.

My husband and I are going to China hopefully next month to get out son with bilateral cleft lip and palate. I have been reading your blog and have enjoyed looking at the pictures. I cried when I saw these pictures. It is reassuring to see how he is so happy now.
