She surprised us by telling us she was going to the orphanage today, taking tons of pre-adoption pictures, and that she would call us sometime today and have SunWan talk to us......
YES, TALK TO US!!!!!So, as we toured and shopped today, we were slightly distracted not knowing at what time she would call. (we have an international sim card in my phone---our best investment thus far).
As time would have it at about 3:20pm we were at the Summer Palace walking on the Marco Polo Bridge and my phone rang. I looked and it was Joni calling. My heart began to race. She was so cheerful and said "I have someone here that wants to talk to you"....
I was so excited!!!!
My heart was racing
I think my voice got really loud because a bunch of chinese people gave me funny looks.
I'm totally chuckling as I'm writing this because it was so precious and funny...
I wish I could have taped the conversation to share with all of you.
The first thing he said was "MOM!!!" that was really LOUD and crazy sounding....and then I think he was laughing or something. It was very funny!!! I was cracking up! Then he said "I LOVE YOU!" that was loud and crazy! He was so excited and totally goofy! Joni said he had the biggest grin on his face as he was talking to us...and we could hear in the backround that he sounded like he must have been bouncing around all over the place. Joni said he kept holding the phone upside down! LOL!!!! Totally cracked me up!
He talked to Peter, and screamed "DA"! and giggled, etc. and then "I LOVE YOU!"
Isaac was next...
Ge Ge (sounds like "gu gu") is the word for brother in Chinese.
So he kept saying that to Isaac.
Can I say his enthusiasm was contageous???
Oh my goodness, it was one of the sweetest moments of my life.
I just get such a tickle inside everytime I think about it and how I must have made a scene on that bridge today.
We did a lot of site seeing also and shopping but right now it all seems so insignificant. I will share that in another post. But I think this post needs to be specifically dedicated to this amazing gift we were given today.
this is the Marco Polo Bridge where we received the call today at 3:20 pm
Isaac meeting his new wild and crazy brother
I'm so thankful to God for His perfect timing and gifts he gives.
We asked Joni to tell him our three top names and ask him what he likes best
And the winner is.........
LUCAS SunWan Jundt
I will make another post with pics about the details of our touring today, but this was the real heart of our day so I had to share this first.
