Better Late Than Never

Last week was a busy, busy week so I ran out of time to post about the last bit of the trip that Dawn and I shared together.

After our adventures in China Town and the homeless area of Vancouver on Friday we decided we were better off with our own wheels below us. (I think our family and friends felt better about this too. When they heard the part of Vancouver we'd been in and the fact that we'd been walking, many said prayers of thankfulness for the safety that God provided.)

Saturday morning (Jan 27th) dawned bright and sunny and off we went. We visited another Babies 'R Us and added a few things to our gift registries plus hit another more exclusive baby store in New Westminster. Let's just say we enjoyed 'window shopping' there and Dawn bought a gift for her friend.

On Friday I'd purchased some Murchie's Tea for Sharon and since it would make nice souvenirs, Dawn and I sought out another location and purchased more.

After that we headed to the movies to see, 'The Painted Veil'. It was a beautiful movie that Dawn and I both enjoyed as it was filmed in China and featured beautiful photography of China. A real treat if you can catch it on the big screen!

The movie is based in the 1920's and is about a couple who go to inland China during a cholera epidemic. The movie even showed many scenes that took place in an orphanage. It's a movie I would highly recommend. If you'd like to read a review click here.

After the movie it was time for Dawn and I to say out good-byes as I was flying out the following morning and she in the evening. We had an absolutely wonderful few days together! We often commented on what a gift from God our friendship is. He has taken 2 waiting moms who are living across the country from one another and allowed us to become great friends sharing this adoption journey together, but more importantly, sharing our faith together.

Dawn, thanks so much for flying to Vancouver so that we could meet in person! It was a great time and I look forward to the day when we do it again....with Hannah and Annaliese! Blessings friend. Love ya!
