DC

This was last fall, but I never posted about it.  Hubby and I were humbled to receive the Angels in Adoption Award.  We brought along Lan Lan and Mei Mei and had beautiful weather and an amazing few days in D.C.  The award ceremony was so very meaningful, listening to all the amazing work so many people have done to help children around the world.  It was inspirational to hear stories of hope, faith, and perseverance -- the tireless work people do to make life better for children in need--and the members of congress who support that work.  

The gala was also very special with Steven Curtis Chapman, Scott Hamilton, Willie Robertson, and others, all connected to adoption in some way.  We also played tourist, became best friends with Uber, and went to several memorials and Smithsonians, including the new African American museum.  Powerful and heart-wrenching, while also incredibly inspirational.  A wonderful honor and lifelong memory.
