We went to meet with the Social Worker at 3pm (1am your time) to finalize a few things, then off to spend a little short visit with Jaelee prior to the send off. The ceremonial prayer by Dr. Kim began at 4pm. It was wonderful (from what I can remember) and then it happened, the foster mother & father gave us her personal items: formula, picture album, clothing, and favorite toys. handed Jaelee over, and we all began to cry with joy and sadness.
We began to walk back to the hostel and the rest was history. We got lots of great pictures of this event thanks to one of the Australian couples (Charlie & Donna) who offered to take pics and video tape the prayer for us so we could stay focused on what was happening.
We brought her to the common area for all to see (this made her smile and helped with Jaelee's transition).
So this may very well be our last blog until we return as we will be very busy the rest of this evening playing, crying, laughing, crying again, packing, and probably not getting much sleep this evening. We will be off bright and early Wednesday at 8am to head off to the plane for our 11am flight.
We'll see you all soon!!
