Our friends are adopting this little boy from Korea!
Ben is from the same agency that we adopted Mindy from!
And he arrived to his forever home yesterday!!!
A year ago, there was a fund raiser auction to help with the costs of the adoption. (costs are 5 times more than when we adopted in 1984!) We auctioned off a Japanese meal. It has been a long time coming, but finally the people who won the bid for our meal were able to come to our home for sukiyaki!
Allen and I decided to dress up for the part. The people who came for the dinner came from McPherson. We did not know them but had kept in touch via e-mail. The couple also brought along 2 young couples. One of them is getting married in just a couple of weeks!
How many vending machines are there in Japan?
The answer is over 8,000,000!
How many possible functions are there in the modern Japanese toilet?
When I was growing up, there were many of this kind of toilet (picture below)! Not modern at all!
The anwer is 14.
Anyway, it was a fun evening and we are so happy for Ben's arrival to the United States and to his new family!
