Beijing, China

Our last few days in China were spent debriefing and doing a little touring in Beijing. It was an odd time, as we were ready to be home and see our families, but we were also really missing our babies in Heng Feng..... Julie and I in Tianamen Square Brooke, Becki, Amy and Julie in the Forbidden City The Imperial Gardens behind the Forbidden City
The Chinese Acrobat Show The Great Wall!! Brooke at the very top! The little tiny buildings you see below are where we started our climb!
We are the group that climbed to the TOP!! These are two of the buildings for the Olympics that will be in August. The swimming arena and the "Birds Nest" behind it. Last night hanging out together..... Before we headed to the airport we stopped at a Tea House....
then had our last meal at the Hard Rock Cafe in Beijing! It was a great way to end our trip. Becki and Brooke (she made me pose like this!) Flying home..... Home sweet home......first stop - Pizza!! So now I'm wondering........how much longer until I can plan my next trip to China?! I'll keep you posted!

I loved following along on your trip! It was so amazing and I can only imagine life-changing. Now, on this next trip...is it for mission or adoption? ;)

Becki, I have loved reading about your trip! It sounds like you had an absolutely amazing time!!! I LOVE the pictures of the babies- SO CUTE!!!! Awwww!!! And yes, of course you are invited to keep following Sarah's blog. I will hopefully get everything up and running later this week. And about Addison's video- I promise I will do it!! My school year is going a bit long this year (til the end of July, because I am doing two years in one so that I can graduate high school this year), but in mid-July I will be done with most of it and then I promise I will get to Addison's video! I am very excited about it!! :)
