Hello Family and Friends,
We are on the last leg. We went to our Consulate appointment for Wyatt's visa today and we actually get his visa tomorrow. We will be driving 3 to 4 hours to Hong Kong tomorrow late afternoon. We get into Hong Kong between 8 and 9 pm, sleep there overnight and then finally get on the plane to come HOME!!! We can't wait!!! It's been a good trip, our Father has answered so many prayers. We praise Him for his faithfulness throughout our Journey2Home. Please lift Wyatt up as he'll be confined for a long drive and then a 14 hour flight. Please lift up our family as we are re-united after what feels like a forever long trip.
Wyatt continues to do well. He is now probably the cleanest kid in China since he really likes his tub now...both in the morning and at night. In fact last night he had a tub got dressed in his PJs and then was trying to undress to get another tub...he wasn't digging us saying "not now" :-)
We went to a folk museum yesterday with interesting wood carvings, and local arts and crafts. We also found an indoor market and bought some more souveniers. Our group enjoyed a yummy Chinese dinner at the hotel restaurant last night and yesterday we had Papa Johns deliver pizza. Wyatt does not like pizza yet something we certainly will need to teach him for our family pizza nights.
He loves to sing and has learned the song Wheels On The Bus and last night I taught him This Little Light of Mine. He loves the "hide it under a bushel, no" part. He is such a joy. He is so smart too. Whenever he sees a toilet/ restroom sign he tells us in Mandarin "Neow Neow" he has only had one nighttime accident so far.
The Bethany Adoption Agency guide here in China can not get over his transformation. She told us to please go home and advocate to our friends and family and encourage them to adopt some of the other children from his CP hospital. Oh they all need a home and the most difficult part is leaving so many behind who need a family. Remind us to show you photos of his friends and perhaps one of our friends will adopt one of his friends. There is a family on our trip who are adopting the good friend of one of their friends little Chinese daughter. Praying that you would all be the Fathers hands and feet as "he sets the lonely in families." Have a lovely week. We can't wait to touchdown on US soil!!
