Consulate Appointment Today





Today, we finalized the adoption on the US side here in China. Gracie and I passed up two great opportunities to have dinner dates with other families. We opted to celebrate girl style in our hotel room with noodles and ice cream for dinner!!! Okay, Gracie had ice cream and I had a lovely little box with an after Gracie went to sleep mama treat!!!! Hence, the mischievous grin on my face in photo!


Truthfully, I love just hanging out with Gracie. Sure it would have passed some time and been fun to have dinner with some really nice families, but ya know I am perfectly content just hanging with my Gracie-cakes!

I love the dress red white & blue how perfect for her American day. She is just so stinking cute. The journey is almost over yet it is only the begining of the new adventure with Robert and the kids what an exciting thought of how wonderful it will be for all the new brothers & sisters. Hope you will be able to get some rest and sleep on the plane. Safe travels for you both on the journey HOME!
