BREAKFAST IN BEIJING
We were walking the Great Wall with the best of them. I believe we lost about 5 lbs of water weight in that climb alone. The memories of "The Big Family" running towards the bus as the certificates of adoption were handed out and our wonderful guide Rui was telling us "tomorrow is the day that we will get to Hefei" "Our babies are there" She was such a wonderful part of our adoption experience. She was helpful, patient, and always went above and beyond her call of duty. Any family who receives her as a guide will have the easiest time during the most exciting time. We even had a disruption of an adoption and Rui handled it like the true professional that she is. Enjoy the pics of the Smiths as a family of 3 for two more days. I will not forget how wonderful it felt to be on HER soil. She was so close I could not hardly bear it...good thing I was still suffering from lack of sleep and fell into a deep sleep that night.
