MOTHERED ON MOTHER'S DAY

CLIMBING THE GREAT WALL was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to China in 2007. Little did I know that it would also be about climbing to a higher understanding of motherhood.

My husband and I had never been to Asia. To get ready for this adventure we hiked local mountains for weeks to prepare. In May we arrived in Beijing. For two days, our guide, Zhi, took us to see the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Imperial Summer Palace, and the famous Pearl Market. At last, the seven-kilometer trek on the Great Wall was only a tomorrow away.
