Yesterday afternoon, we went to the US Consulate to take the oath and pick up the paperwork that will allow Micah to gain citizenship when we go through immigration in Detroit on Saturday. It was pretty exciting for it to finally be real. No one can take him from us now. He is our son. I can't tell you how wonderful that feels.
Most of the families in our group left this morning. We spent the day quietly wandering around the island and doing some last minute shopping. We started packing early so we won't have to be up late. I'm a little intimidated by the long flights home, but at some point we will get there. Pray for our time on the plane. We've enjoyed our time in China, but it's time to get home and get started on the rest of our lives. Thank you all for your comments and prayers. They have sustained us through the highs and the lows of this journey.
