Tonight we gathered with a few of our amazing friends that have adopted children from China. One of the couples in attendance is adopting a beautiful little girl from Vietnam.
We all have such a special connection to the host country through our children. We watched in amazement as the evening unfolded. Marc projected the ceremonies on a 10 foot video screen set up on our back patio. In the middle of it all we Skyped with Kim C and family who are now living in Shanghai. We projected their image on to the 10 foot screen while we spoke to them..... Oh, they loved that...LOL!! Now remember that Kim and Richard had seen the ceremonies all unfold live 12 hours earlier since they are in China so they were able to let us know what was coming next.
We almost made it to the end of the ceremonies. The kiddos had the final say though as they were all pretty much exhausted after their evening of fun. These kids sure know how to party. They have to if they live with us or even just know us as parties are the name of the game around here.
Ok, back to our evening and the pictures.......
Enjoying the evening with friends and family
