It’s hard to believe it’s been over 6 weeks since we left Vietnam. We seem to have hit the ground running since our arrival home and I’ve hardly had a moment to stop and breath, hence my lack of posts lately… and it taking me a whopping 6 weeks to finally post these!
I can’t even begin to explain how truly amazing it was to take our kids over there for the first time, after talking about it with them their whole lives. And you know the funniest thing? It was like they had lived there their whole lives, nothing really fazed them; not the busyness, the strange smells or people pinching their faces (half-cast kids are adored over there!), they instantly bonded with their family in the village (I didn’t see the kids for 2 days straight, they were too busy playing with their cousins!) and it was as if they knew deep down, they were home. What was even more amazing still was seeing them meet their 100 year old Grandma, who sadly passed away this week just gone. The tears in her little eyes as she met, hugged and kissed them on that first day in the village is an image I will never forget for as long as I live. Such special moments.
