Ready to go....

Here we are at 11:19am, waiting to be picked up at 2:30 and be taken to the Civil Affairs office to finally meet our Mia!

I am in a fog, trying to unpack our luggage and put things away so we will have a clutter free room when we return back with our daughter. The more I unpack the harder it is for me to remember what I have or have not moved around. Gordon is of course his usual calm, unlike his wife.

Diaper bag is packed and waterproof mascara has been applied (note puffy eyes from constant crying )

****The internet connections here in Changsha are sketchy so we will post whenever we can.

Can't wait to see your first post after you get your Mia. Honestly I didn't cry although I choked up once from hearing my husband crying. We saw our daughter in the hall and of course she was the one crying and crying hard and all of a sudden because he couldn't stand that she was so frightened he lost it. I think his tears may have scared her so she clung to me. It will be fine.
