We are still thinking everyday about our precious daughter in China
Over 6 years of waiting haven't diminished our love and longing for a little girl we haven't met yet
The stork has been elusive
But finally we can see an end to our journey
It seems like forever since we have mentioned anything about our adoption, but there really hasn't been much to tell. We still don't have any concrete news, but it seems likely that our daughter will be home by the end of this year. After waiting for over 6 years to bring Natalie home, it's hard to believe that we are finally nearing the end of this journey.
Recently, in order to update our adoption paperwork, we had to get fingerprinted for the third time by the Department of Homeland Security in Memphis. The staff there was very efficient this trip, so we ended up having extra time which we used to visit the Memphis Zoo.
Our main agenda was to see the Pandas which perfectly fit the theme of the day.
This lovely lady had buried herself in bamboo and was enthusiastically chowing down the whole time we were there.
She looked so happy eating her 'nummy bamboo. I didn't realize that Pandas have to eat 40 pounds of bamboo every day and that it takes them almost all day to consume that amount.
Appropriately, our last stop at the zoo was to view examples of the iconic symbol of Natalie's future country.
