We would have said the day was a bit of a bust, except for the couple we just met that day. We met Mr. L and Miss I and their 10 month baby girl Miss E. They just got matched last month to their daughter in China. She is about 9 months older than Miss E. They will hopefully be going to get her around September. The kicker, is Miss I is Finnish! It was like two worlds combined for me. My BFF is Finnish and to meet Miss I and get her and hear her adoption tale, it was awesome! She even helped me text some Finnish to my BF to surprise her. It was fun. And what's cute is Miss I's name is my BF's Miss M's middle name. And they're both from the same area in Finland. How crazy is that?
I really liked them and hope to see them again. It's always great when you meet someone you connect with. I just hope it pans out. But if not, they made the day there so much fun, and I'm grateful for that.
Maybe next year will travel someone further for a more involved Dragon Boat Festival experience.
