We had such a great time getting together with a local adoptive group this weekend to celebrate Chinese New Year. We have been attending celebrations with this group for years through the waiting process and they have been a great source of support to us. Seeing other people's kids was a good dose of encouragement through our long wait and it was great to finally have Chloe there with us. I hope seeing her was an encouragement to others who are waiting too.
Chloe had a great time playing ball with her friends Brailey and Brin.It seemed a little odd to have to pack American food for Chinese girl at a Chinese New Year Celebration. Those would be carrots in her mouth. Chloe is on a restricted diet because of the TB medication she is taking and she's not allowed to have any soy sauce. Well just about all Chinese food has soy in it somehow. So it was we Americans who got to eat the Chinese food and Chloe had to eat American.
