We have tried to 'soak' in the Chinese culture over the past 2 weeks. We have eaten more Chinese food then I have probably eaten in my entire life in the span of 2 weeks. We have learned everything we could from our guides. Today we broke down today and ate this...
We are ready to come home. The last two nights Emma has woken up at midnight, 2, 4, and up for the day at 6 am. She wakes up confused as to where she is and who we are. I don't blame her. I wake up and wonder where the heck I am. We are exhausted - both emotionally and physically. Being away from our DD Lexie for this long has taken it's toll. It is time for us to close out this chapter of our adoption.
Oh yeah, we did have Emma's consulate appt today as well. All went as planned -- tomorrow we get her visa and she will be a US citizen when we land.
Tomorrow at 4:30 we will be heading to HK. Our next post should be our last from China!
