The Many Adventures of Keira!

This is our page to document our family's adoption journey- starting from when we first started planning for our little one, to when we brought her home. We're also going to keep this updated with all of the things that Keira has been up to since she's been home with us here in the U.S!

The Great Wall of China

First we headed to a Jade Factory where we were able to watch how they carve the Jade figurines. After that, we headed over to the Great Wall. We've all seen the pictures of the Great Wall, but it doesn't come anywhere close to doing it justice when you compare it to actually being there. It's phenomenal! It's also something else thinking of all the manpower and work it took so many many years ago to build it. I was the great chicken and made it up to about halfway to the first tower before getting freaked out about the steepness and the height. I'm not normally scared of heights, but these steep steps are almost straight down. Dan did much better than me and made it to about one tower away from the top before heading back down.
