First Boat Ride and Saying Goodbye to China

This evening, our last in China before going home, we took Jingju on a boat ride tour around the Shamian Island. All along the canal, the buildings, boats, and Bridges are lit up like Christmas trees. Jingju really enjoyed the ride and took lots of photos. In just a few hours we board a plane to take Jingju home to meet her father, her family, and start her new life.


  1. The last day in China was the hardest and most emotional day for me. Lots to look forward to but lots to say goodbye to...

    Have a safe trip home. We can't wait to meet Miss JingJu.

    Love, Heather

  2. I imagine it will be quite difficult for both of you to say good-bye to China. But so much to look forward to as well. I hope and pray your journey home is safe and without event. Thanks so much for including me on your journey to your daughter. It has truly been amazing and uplifting from this end as well...

  3. How beautiful and what a wonderful way to say goodbye! I want to do the same so please save the information on this boat ride. Jingju looks so happy and not sad. She will such a great life with her new family. You did a great job on this journey receiving your daughter! Thank you so much for sharing!!
    Lots of hugs & best wishes for the days ahead,
