During one of our free days, we may have the option of visiting the orphanage that she has been in for so long in LuoHe, or we might go to Puyang, to see her “finding spot”. We really won’t know those exact details until we are there. I think both experiences would be invaluable, but we will have to travel several hours to get to each place, and I don’t think we can do both. I think I will just have to evaluate the situation when we get there. I can’t believe it is really almost here!!
