Dad's first solo day with Sophia

Colin wrote another poem. I think it is worth reading. It is a few posts down as he wrote it several days ago but was too shy to post it.

P.E. at a Guangzhou Elementary School

Colin had his first solo outing with Sophia today. Our agency managed to arrange a visit of a local Guangzhou Elementary school. Kat was exhausted so she wimped out and stayed at the hotel to take a much needed nap.

Everyone was very impressed with the children and the schools. The children apparently start to attend at the age of 6 and go a mandatory 9 years. After that, they test to see if they qualify for additional education. Most of the children practiced their English. There was a question and answer session where our group asked them questions and the children, in turn, asked our group questions.

Dads' day out.

Ah, what lovely memories and saga of the "Sophia Adventure"!! What shared memories with you fellow adopters and your family. I am amazed at what you all went thru to get these beautiful daughters. And what they must have been thru to get their adoptive parents. An absolutely unique experience and I commend you all for the patience and committment you had.
Sophia is a jewel in our lives and another chance to be a grandparent to a young infant that I may have some part of her growing experience.
