Last night we made our way to the Atlanta airport to see Emma-3 (Hohhot SWI) and Hope-6 (Boatou SWI) come home forever!!! It was a beautiful moment for both families. We are so excited that Emma will live right here in Fayetteville with her family and that she and Shiloh can grow up together. Shiloh has taken a look at Emma's blog over and over and says, "Emma home"....I am not sure that she understood that waiting at the airport we were about to see Emma, but once Emma was in view Shiloh called to her and was quick to try to give her a hug. Emma wasn't too sure about that but it is tough making the long journey home and meeting all the strange new people. I cannot wait to get these two together for a play date. Emma is about Shiloh's size and such a cutie with a smile! Hope's family arrived a few minutes afterwards as they had purchased moon cakes and customs took a closer look! (Gotta love it!) Jenna, Hope's mom had told us that Hope took care of the little kids in Baotou and that she knew Shiloh. I was anxious to see how their meeting would go. After initial family greeted her, Shiloh walked right up to her and Hope said "Hongmei!!!" She hugged Shiloh and carried her around. Shiloh was all smiles. I was all tears...my little girl has another friend nearby in Auburn....not too far to visit-a link to her life before us. It was so touching to watch them play for a moment. Maybe later on Hope can enlighten us all to how it was living in Baotou and maybe she will know some details about Shiloh's life there as well. It is indeed a small world afterall....imagine these three little precious girls, all from Inner Mongolia finding a moment in the middle of the Atlanta airport more than 7000 miles away from all they have ever known.
