"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

Corban's Gotcha in 7 hours...

I know I'm a bit behind on the blog but wanted to let you all know I haven't forgotten. We made it to Guangzhou yesterday afternoon about 2pm and to our hotel, the Victory Hotel on Shamian Island, about 3:30pm.  We got settled in and then walked the island for a bit. We ran into Jordan, while walking the streets.  Jordan owns a store here, called Jordan's, on the island and does calligraphy of adopted children's American names and their meaning.  He did it for us last time too.  We staying and chatted for a bit while he painted them. Great conversation and he's so supportive of adoptive parents. Then we headed back to the hotel and picked up some Subway sandwiches to take up to our rooms.  Not quite Subway from the states but it wasn't bad.

Anyway, we meet Corban in about 7 hours!!!!  I will update with Gotcha Day photos and info later.

Please pray for a smooth transition for him and for Tegan who will now have to share mom.
