Here is what really breaks my heart - the people are clearly confused - they ask me if my husband is Chinese - I say No - they ask our guide why we want "China Children" - and she told them we had other children of our own but that we love children and want to have them in our family. They say we are very nice people! But we see them point at Jada's eyes - one lady very clearly was pointing at her eyes - that is the sad part - because she is not "perfect" people can not figure out why we'd want her. Joe and I have teared up a few times today - we will take her!! We love to see her smile, I love to help guide her feet over a new color of floor when she is hesitant, I love it when we put lotion on her feet and she won't let us stop - she smiles the whole time, I love it when she tries to play games with me when we are eating, I love how she wraps her baby in her napkin like a blanket and cradles the baby in her arms, and I love it when she looks up at me and says "Mama". She is perfect to us!
Xiaoxia (pronounced "Show" (as in shower) and "Sha" as in Cha, cha cha but with the "sh" on the front.) is napping right now and then we'll head out and see more of Nanjing tonight. This little one is overwhelmed by it all, I am sure. But she smiles - that's all worth it! God is good - His plan is good!
