We made it to Hong Kong via train around 7:00 this evening. It was not bad at all. We did a test run with all our luggage from our room to the lobby this afternoon to see how bad it really was going to be:) Our guide Kelli helped with Madeline and Janie through the train station but we were good to go by the time she left us. We already miss her!!
Mom, Hong Kong reminds me so much of Panama. Really pretty and busy. We are at our hotel via a small Toyota cab and all our luggage. If the driver could understand us he would have reported us, Madeline stood up eleventy billion times, Janie pooped again, Madeline was touching John David, John David was touching Madeline, Madeline stood up eleventy billion times, repeat. For a day that was super easy, we made up for it on a 20 minute cab ride!!! The hotel is great, never ever traveling without the executive floor again!!
Our plane takes off at 11:00 a.m. We have been blessed in every way this trip. Every single thing has gone well. I truly dreaded the train ride and getting all the luggage and 3 kids and it was no biggie. Tomorrow should be LONG but I think we are up to it due to the fact we are going home. YAY!! I have to say this has been a wonderful, blessed trip.
Janie has been doing so great. Today on the train she started singing to me, she was standing in the aisle. All of a sudden, she got the saddest look on her face, closed her eyes and put her arms over her eyes. She would not let Hank or me hold her. We think she was thinking about her foster mother, she must have sung that song with her. This lasted a few minutes and then she was back to her happy self. So much going on in her little mind. Please continue to pray for her as we leave all she knows. She is so very resilient, sweet, smart, precious and brave. We love her with all our hearts and are thankful to be bringing her home.
Thank you for following along with us and for your prayers which we know have been many!!!!
I will try to post a few pics when we get home:)
