it was such a beautiful meeting.
it didn't arrive until a few weeks after we left, but here is my grandpa james with his "cedar james tree". its a white cedar tree that he planted so that he can watch the tree grow in his backyard, as cedar grows far away. then, when cedar comes home he will be able to see the tree that his great-grandpa planted for him when he was just a little baby.
the trip was also a great chance for cedar to be introduced to more of his family - great aunts & uncles & sweet cousins too!
