We went to the country to visit the family we traveled with to China.
On the way, we had to stop and visit with Sonya and KL.
AC loved visiting with girls and feeding the horses. It is always so peaceful there.
They tried their clothes on they wore on their "Gotcha Day". I don't think they will fit into them next year. This year brought alot of questions from the girls. They are insistant that they are related... sisters, cousins or something since they come from the same orphanage. We explained to them we didn't have all the answers to some of their questions, but if that is how they wanted to write their story of their time in China that was fine with us. AC's questions gave me alot to think about and I know I need to finish her lifebook.
Below are some photos from our time in China. Its amazing to see how much the girls have grown and changed.
We called the doorman, "The Mad Hatter".
We were amazed that she could actually feed herself with chopsticks.
When we returned to our hotel from the Civil Affairs office, she passed out and slept for a few hours. I guess this was a way of her coping with all the changes.
