One of the positive side-effects of our long wait to adopt is that it gives us time to read about parenting, attachment and the history and culture of China. Jen's parents gave us a really cool calendar that focuses on one of the Chinese provinces each month. Once we know which province Grace is from, we will do as much research as we can about that province. In the meantime, I though it would be fun to post a picture of the calendar each month.
The Province for January is Guangxi. Guangxi is a mountainous region in the southern part of China. It has a population of about 49,000,000 and is famous for its picturesque Li river and surrounding mountains. Looking back at the referrals from our agency there seem to be quite a few children from Guangxi.
Will be interesting to see how many months of the calendar we get through until we learn where Grace is from.
