We are coming home
A plane took us to Kunming 2 weeks ago and tomarrow we wake up to board a plane to take us home. The concept of us has changed much in the last two weeks. We want to thank everyone who has supported us on this journey. From the support of family and friends in acceptance of this very adventure to the multiple fundraisers to the ongoing encouragement over 3 years. There were so many people invovled in this we could not name everyone. We want to thank those who cared for Stephen and Jacob...we miss them terribly, but it helped to know they were in good hands. We did not know how this journey would go, but we did believe in how it would end. We come home with a journey to Mia ending, but the new beginning of our expanded family. We are happy to have so many wonderful people in our lives and the lives of our children. We look forward to many of you meeting our newest edition. Thank you for taking this journey with us. Our final task in China was to take the picture of Mia on the red couch in the White Swan hotel. For those of you who did not know... it is a tradition of families to photograph their adopted daughters on a red couch in the lobby of the White Swan hotel...some parents even come from other hotels to do this. Unfortunately, our travel partner..Tessa was not able to be photographed but we will post a picture of our travel group to make up for it. We cant wait to be home Love, Ann Marie Paul and Mia
