After 24 hours of car travel to the airport, two flights, and a long drive thru Beijing's rush hour (felt like we were living again in Atlanta!), we finally arrived at our hotel last night. We were two very tired travelers. We ate some dinner and headed straight to bed However, it is now 6 hours later and we are both wide awake and our day does not begin for another 6 hours.
Several of you have asked about Kelsey and Ella Grace. They are staying with friends and family. They are having their own great adventure.
We are looking forward to being tourists today with the other 15 families who are adopting. Group travel - Jason's patience will be tested and refined. It will be fun to learn about the culture and history of Will Hudson's homeland. We will take pictures and share with him the place where his journey on earth began.
We’ve been thinking about Will Hudson’s natural parents. Who were they? We will never know since Will Hudson was abandoned. Did they not have the capacity to take care of his medical needs? Were they young and felt like they had no other option? Were they wounded souls who made a poor choice? Join us in praying for them. May they experience a divine peace that a family is going to do their best to give their biological son a home. We are looking forward to holding him in our arms in 4 more days.
God is present. He is the Father of all those involved. We all cry “Abba!”
