Day 4 - Part 1

We're in Xi'an. Only 22 minutes from leaving for the notary office where we will meet Sheehan and bring him back to the hotel. Our stomachs are uneasy and we're a jumble of nerves. Only Steve and I would try to relax by sitting down for a cup of cappuccino and chocolate cake before venturing out to meet our son. (Actually, the restaurant was closed, we had to settle for dessert and coffee).

Our ride in from the airport was about and hour. Xi'an is a bit dirtier than Beijing. We haven't experienced much of Xi'an yet. It could be like approaching Chicago from Gary, IN though, we'll see. Maybe the other side of Xi'an is prettier. We still saw many people sweeping streets with GIANT brooms made out of tree brush. It's very interesting. Actual home-made brooms.

Well, I'm going to go throw up...jk. We'll write more later, if we aren't overwhelmed with our toddler. :-)

Love to Everyone!

P.S. Steve is actually sleeping right now! How does he do that? I'm the one that took the drugs to get on the plane AND he had a cappuccino, I merely had a hot chocolate (french-style...very bitter). Print Friendly and PDF

    Hurray! Baby Day! It is 7:22am Chicago time... and I'm guessing you have met Sheehan by now. How wonderful! The pictures are GREAT and you are doing a GREAT job of describing everything. I'm so excited to hear about meeting Sheehan. We are praying for you and him in the bonding transition. I'm praying for a smile and laughter. :)

    Baby Day!!!
    It's 7:41 a.m. Chicago time. We couldn't wait to get out of bed and check the computer, disappointed to not yet see Sheehan. We'll keep checking!!!
    Hope your day is going great and little Sheehan loves his mom and day!

    Grandpa & Grandma Hall send their love to all 3 Halls in Xi'an (Sunday 8:40 AM in Buffalo Grove). Just like our awesome God to orchestrate a Sunday "arrival" for Sheehan! Have a blessed 1st day as a new post pix of our wonderful new Grandson! PTL!
