We are back home!

We arrived home Sunday afternoon, a little slap happy tired, but so satisfied with what was accomplished. We have been gently recovering from the time difference. It's amazing what you can get done when you wake up wide awake at 3 am.

Needless to say, both of us really needed Mexican food when we got home. As of now, I've had it twice and I'm on my way to a third. While Amy and I have traveled internationally before, this trip was culturally exhausting for us. We have a couple of theories:

1) we were mightily stressed before leaving getting everything prepared, plus wrapping up details here for while we were gone, which leaves you emotionally and physically drained...not the best way to start a trip.
2) after a while in China, you begin to feel very claustrophobic.
3) we really weren't prepared for real Chinese food.

However, we left with a deep love for the people of China, especially our 22 children we facilitated the 2 day camp for. Our staff is developing plans for finding families for these great kids, plus thinking forward for future advocacy efforts for children in China. We can't wait to continue to share photos and video through this blog.

Hope you all are enjoying the amazing fall weather!
