A year ago today...

A year ago today my mom and I were on a plane to China!  It's so hard to believe.  What an amazing journey we were setting out on.  Of course the focus was to get Mia Jade but the first couple days it was me, Mom and China!  I loved seeing Beijing, standing on the Great Wall, visiting the Forbidden City and taking it all in.  So today I don't reflect on Mia's gotcha just yet, but on the leap of faith at the end of a long journey with my best friend, my mom.  Not a day goes by that I do not think about China - the people, the food, the history, everything.  I loved being in China and I pray I will be able to go back again some day.  I hope it's with mom again.  It will definitely be with Mia Jade.  I want her to love China like I love China.  Thank you Mom for always supporting me and being the best travel partner I could have asked for!  It was an amazing two weeks and a life changing event in many ways!

We love remembering these same milestones, never forgetting the painful wait, then the joy at referral, then getting on that plane. No one can understand unless they have been through it. Sharing the joy of these memories with you!
