It's been over a week now since we have been home and I am finally updating the blog. I always have such a hard time returning from China. I'm still waking up at 4:30 am every morning. It is nice to be home but it is always a tough adjustment to get back to a normal routine.
This was a life changing experience for all of us, but especially Christian. He really enjoyed being in China and now wants to learn Chinese, which is great. This will really help him be able to develop a relationship with his birth family. We have talked about taking a Chinese class as a family, although I do not have high hopes in ever being fluent in Chinese.
We have already received emails from Christian's brother and we plan to continue to correspond with all of them. I think it will have to be by snail mail for his grandmother and uncle since they do not have internet access, but that's okay. I already miss them!
It is going to take some time for Christian to process all that he has experienced over the last few months. Please pray for us as we try to absorb all of this and continue to develop relationships with our new extended family in China!
Also please keep our extended family in your prayers- that they are more at peace now and that his birth mother and grandmother live many more years so that Christian has a chance to develop a relationship with them.
Thanks for your support and encouragement. I do hope to write a book and so does Christian as we both have a story to tell from different perspectives. If anyone knows of a publisher that might be interested please let me know.
Thanks again for your interest in our story! God bless!
For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord. -Jeremiah 30:17
