A place to keep up with our happenings!

Forever Family Day September 2, 2007

We have Tian! She’s even more beautiful in person than in any photo! I can’t stay on long, but wanted to let everybody know that we got in to Nanchang, had about 20 minutes at the hotel, and then were off to the Civil Affairs Office. Tian was already there waiting, and was front and center when we walked in the room….tunnel vision set in, and I didn’t see anything or anybody else. She isn’t as happy with us as we are with her…poor thing. She had such a long drive in to town…probably 4 hours (and it isn’t likely she’s ever been on any kind of long car ride…probably just to the hospital or doctors office in her village.) Then, all these new wierd faces. We came back to our room, and she really didn’t want anything to do with us, although she’s familiar with the photo album we sent, and she hugged on her new dog (the one that matches the dog we sent her.) Finally, I just laid down on the bed, and laid her beside me. I knew she was exhausted, and terrified, and only time and love will make her feel safe, and better. I need to sign off, and start unpacking and getting things ready for our trip back to the Civil Affairs Office tomorrow. I still can only receive emails, not send any, and I still can’t write on the journeytome site.

More later! And please keep praying. We love you.
