Grace Reconnects with China

WOW! What an amazing day. We visited four Beijing attractions: The Jade Factory, The Great Wall, a handmade enamel studio, and the Ming Tombs. I woke up this morning with a little girl who was more interested in learning Spanish than Mandarin and returned home hearing "Mom, I'm Chinese NOT you." It is hard to describe the wonder that appeared in her eyes as the day unfolded. In the end she walked hand in hand with our guide, Jill, and said "I was born in China too," grinning from ear to ear.

Thinking of you and the girls as I follow you every step of the way! Your blog and all the "stories" are deeply touching. You are doing wonderful things even amidst the sobs and heartaches as well as the abiding joy with those loving pats on the shoulder and those beautiful little girls and their smiles!! Love, Rose
