Beijing Day 2

We tackled the Great Wall today!  We decided to start our trek up the steepest side and we made it to the first gullet.  We should have counted our steps but it seemed like we went up a million.  It was an amazing view.

The most interesting part of the day was the fame we have here in China.  Many of the domestic tourists are from rural areas and have never seen Americans.  We must have been asked to pose for a photo with hundreds of Chinese and a few middle easterners. 

I just love the Chinese face.  As I looked into the face of the beautiful women, I could see the face of my daughter.  The beauty of these people that radiates in the eyes of one (soon two) of my own takes my breath away.  I was "dreaming" of my daughter's birth moms today as I watched all the women pass.  I was thinking that we are walking on the same continent, in the same country, and I was wishing with everything in me that I could have just a moment with them. 

Tomorrow, we fly out to the next destination.  The city in which my daughter will be birthed into my arms.  After waiting all these months, I simply can't wait to meet her. 

Thank you for your comments and for prayers!  I am relishing each and every one!  I feel like I am carrying many friends with me.  Onward we go.  Zhenghzou here we come!


  1. So now you're getting ready for bed, anticipating that flight in the morning that will put you steps away from your baby girl. I remember that feeling...I have butterflies now and it's not me going through this!! I can't wait!

  2. Woo-Hoo so excited for you! Can't wait to see pictures.
    Praying for you.

  3. The day is almost here!!!! I'm so excited for you!!!!
