Luckily, the girls are making him feel at home by bringing their crazy to the conversation! We had dinner in our hotel room (he ate great ) and then the girls had a bath (he wanted no part). It got lively after dinner as the girls had been up since 3 am. The crazy punch drunk girls, the tv, and a $4 can of Pringles all got him to open up. By 715 everyone in the family was sleeping. Jet lag is kicking everyone's tail - jake especially. He slept through Lingaos arrival - which is fine with us - they now have their entire lives in front of them!!
We have a long day of appointments tomorrow. Please pray lingao continues to feels peace about our family. It's funny - the crazy the kids act the more he loves them. But the Chinese are very proper so my kids running around in public like lunatics is not really looked upon in a positive light. We are working on the balance!!
I know bringing our kids was THE BEST decision we made. We are all growing and learning an insane amount. Listening to Alexis process all that is happening in china (why is it so foggy all the time, are those ppl living in those buildings that are falling apart going to be ok?) confirms that even a 5 year old can have an eye opening experience! If you are an adoptive parent and thinking about it - do it!!! You won't regret it.
