My friend, J, and her husband left for China today to pick up their baby. They are adopting the sweetest little boy. She's one of the first people I met online when we began considering China. I've followed their journey from time they completed an adorable pink baby room through their decision to switch to the waiting child program to their being matched with a baby boy! After an excruciatingly long wait for travel approval, they are finally on their way.
This adoption journey is not a straight, short, paved road. It's a meandering path, sometimes narrow, often leading you to a fork in the road where there are no signs to guide your way. There are no mileage signs telling you how far to your destination. You just keep marching forward, confident that you will eventually get there as long as you stay on the path.
I'll be following their journey on her blog. I'm so thrilled to see J making this trip.
