We are finally there - Leaving for China Monday May 7th. We will be touring the Beijing for couple of days and than we will travel to Nanchang where we meet our Mei Ann on May 14th.
Which will really be Sunday the 13th (China is 12 hours ahead of us). So it is going to be wonderful Mother's day present.
We will be coming back on May 24th. I hope to meet with couple of our "adoptive friends" which I met mostly online on China adopt talk or on various Face Book groups.
There are no words to describe how much we are excited about meeting our little girl. Please cross your fingers, pray and send good thoughts our way in hope that Mei's bonding will go well and her grieving is not so hard on her.
In adoption it is actually somewhat good that children are grieving. It means mostly that they are missing the person who cared for the until now and it also means that they were able to attached before. Most of these children get easier attached to their new parents. I so so wish this would be Mei's case, but we will do whatever we need to to make her comfortable with us, to teach her trust and to love back.
Mei has been with her foster family since second day of her life. As she leaves their life , she will also leave hurt behind. I can not even imagine how this feel. She is also going to be loosing her foster sister who is only few weeks older. Her name is Feng Qiu Man born in 1/2011. She is in process to be adopted also and has been matched with family. I have tried to post on online adoption communities about her in hope to get in touch with family. And there is very little chance this will ever happen.
It will be really hard time for this little girl.
And than she will be getting her big brother Marco, who is absolutely excited to meet her (hope it stays this way after). She will be forever ours.
