Bitter Sweet Tears

Tonight we said goodbye to a good friend, an angel who tucked us under her wing and took care of us, accompanied us on all our adventures in four cities, made us laugh, translated funny words, took us off the beaten path, saved us from mosquitos, ate with us, laughed with us, taught us how to cross the street in China, treated us like family, and the list is endless. I was dreading this moment since the day I burst into tears when we said goodbye last week, even though we were to be reunited in only two days! I know we will see each other again but there is a bitter sweet heaviness in my heart tonight. Aiyi Xi Xi, in her own words, really did "make this adoption trip extra special for you from beginning to end".

Women Ai Ni AiYi Xi Xi!
