We're Here! Part 3

Today's the day!
Today, Tuesday August 10th 2010 will forever be the day that our family became complete. In about a half hour or so we will travel south across the beautiful Han River to the agency for the last time to meet with our daughter's social worker, and go over paperwork. Her foster mother will then say her final goodbyes and then pass our daughter to us. It will be bittersweet. Although it is a joyous day for our family, our daughter will be grieving for her foster mother and we will do our best to comfort her. Please keep us, our little girl, and her foster mother in your prayers. We are so grateful for this child.

God is good.

In the meantime, enjoy some pics of our oldest out and about Seoul. The hotel netowork has been down the last day and a half so they are long overdue! Here, we were at Seoul Tower to place a lock on the fence for our daughter.

And now at the Korean War Museum

It was spectacular and one of our favorite places so far. We took several pictures, but here are just a few

The reaction after finding a Pizza Hut (a.k.a. familiar food)
Although, even Pizza Hut even had a Korean spin and we had to search high and low on the menu for a plain ol' pepperoni pizza

One of the many shops in Itaewon

Our scroll guy in Itaewon- he was amazing to watch, I tell ya
He's working on a rice paper scroll with our family name. I can't wait to get this thing framed and on our wall!

Okay, this requires a little explanation. The equivalent to Walmart in Seoul has a few floors and escalators you can put your shopping cart on. Our oldest was exhausted from the heat and walking so I stuffed him in the cart- he managed to get a few head rubs from the locals who must've thought he was worse off than he really was.
Gandalf The White!! Who would've thought we'd run into him in Korea!
{ much to the delight of two Lord of The Rings junkies}

And I have to include this. No, the picture is not upsidedown- this is how I found him playing his DS on the couch earlier.
