|Celebrating U.S. Citizenship for Jinna when we landed in Detroit|
A whole bunch of Wrays waiting for us! We had told everyone to stay home and not come to the airport because we knew we would be getting in late, but they totally disobeyed me and came anyway! On a school night and everything! Our plane didn't get in until almost midnight, so those kids were up LATE (the latest EVER, according to Kai. :) ).
We stepped off the elevator and were completely surprised and overwhelmed (almost literally) by the Wray clan! Suddenly there was a whole swarm of cousins surrounding Jinna Rai, waving posters in her face. But our little girl is quite a trooper....even after all the changes she's endured over the last 2 weeks, and all the travel in the last 2 days, she was still able to take it all in calmly and with some smiles.
We're not sure how much she comprehends, but I know she felt like that impromptu party was pretty special because on the way home in the car she kept tracing over the letters on the signs and pointing at herself and talking away (in Mandarin). Then she gestured that she wanted me to put them all in her special backpack -- where she keeps all her personal treasures. She also was pretty excited to play with a little stuffed animal one of the cousins gave her.
