I'll leave you with these two cute Sophie photos. I've been up since 5:30 a.m. blogging. It's the only time I can do it, as Sophie is not on my lap. I'm almost caught up, except for our trip to Feng Cheng (Sophie's birthplace) on Thursday. I may just post a few photos. It was very emotional, but Ed and I are so glad we went. We were trying to decide whether or not to go, and then we got a comment from someone I don't know saying, "Make sure you go to Feng Cheng."
Thanks for all the nice comments in response to "Anonymous." I had no idea so many "strangers" were reading this blog. I tend to think of my "audience" as mostly friends (online and otherwise) and family. Yesterday we got a comment from a Belgian woman who "happened upon" our blog and turns out she knows one of the Belgian families in our hotel here. Small world!
Today (Friday) we fly to Guangzhou, where we will stay until we leave while waiting for processing of Sophie's visa. I'm sad to leave Jiangxi, since this is where we met Sophie for the first time. But I am also anxious to get home. My sister's "Sam report" yesterday mentioned that we have reached the halfway mark on our trip, and my heart ached that we still have so long before we get to see Sam and have him meet his sister.
Next post will probably be from Guangzhou.
