When we were in China in 2007 we had an internet gallery. This does not exists any more, so I decided to make a new one here on the blog. And to refresh my memories from a trip to the other side of the earth, where I became a mother and Hans a father! A trip so different from anything we ever did and ever will do! A trip to a new life!
China has a huge place in our hearts and will always have. But our memories of the trip is a mix of a fantastic country, a huge city, becoming a family, being so far from home and our loved ones and we can only imagine what Linnea went through. Getting our Linnea was absolutely the best gift we could ever get, but that we didn’t know at the time. Our trip was also a trip with more emotions in the air than any of us ever had experienced before (and ever will again). Sadness and confusion. Loneliness & helplessness. These big emotions are printed in our bodies and refreshing my memories of the happy moment by looking at the photos make me realize that we really had an amazing start as a family. Look at our smiles! They were there many times! You see it in our eyes! In a split second we became parents to a miracle. Our bodies knew, but our minds needed time to cope with all that was going on!
5 years have passed. We are about to go back as a family. For me it hopefully will bring closure to the though memories! And it will be amazing! (And now I know how to make a gallery when we’re in China again!)
Enjoy the trip back in time from October 22nd to November 8th 2007. Click on the photo to enlarge them.
