One year plus 6 hours ago

It’s 9:00 AM tomorrow in China right now.  One year ago at this time we were within 6 hours of meeting The Bing, our daughter, for the first time.  Wow.  We were at a meeting signing papers, learning how to make a Chinese bottle (HOT!), and learning a few important Chinese phrases for soothing a fussy baby. 

Tomorrow, to celebrate, we are taking the train to the closest Chinatown about an hour away.  We’ll wander around, go for real Chinese food (we’re planning on Peking Duck – YUM!), and take the train home.  Of course, we’ll tell Bing-Bing about the day she joined our family.  Should be a loverly day.
