With tears in my eyes and feeling constantly choked up with emotion, here is the agency, Eastern Social Welfare Society, that took me in until I was adopted. I woke up this morning not sure what to do because I was feeling very complacent. After the anxiousness of navigating from the airport to the agency last night in a country that doesn’t speak English, I woke up still in that cloud of feeling lost. I don’t have an agenda, I don’t have 1st 2nd or 3rd steps mapped out, I just have a huge calling to follow and purpose to fulfill and that feels overwhelming but a privilege. In order to prevent myself from laying in bed too long and letting this feeling of complacency overwhelm me, I decided step 1 was to get coffee, step 2 was to get my computer connected so I could respond to some messages from my private investigator. There just so happens to be a coffee cafe on the first floor of Eastern so I decided to park myself there just to get myself out of the black hole of my bed. About 45 mins later this beautiful lady came up to me and asked if I was an adoptee. She turned out to be the President of Eastern and once I introduced myself she said “we’ve been waiting for you!” What? How comforting was that!! Instantly that feeling of complacency vanished. She said the staff had told her about me and from my emails they couldn’t wait to meet me. Wow. Talk about feeling welcomed ❤️ Then something amazing happened, in her next breath she asked me if I would like to see one of their babies shelters which happens to be on the 3rd floor!!! Yes!!! I jumped out of my seat with excitement and almost started crying right there. We are not allowed to take photos but that’s okay because walking into that shelter was an experience no photo could capture. There were maybe 30 babies, each in their own little cubby-shaped crib, and they were ALL sleeping!!! All but one! Only one baby was crying!! I wonder if I was put here when I came to Eastern???! We don’t know yet but this is just the beginning of my discoveries. Thanks to you all for your loving support. The outpouring of messages are so moving & I’m so appreciative ❤️❤️
