Guangzhou Day TODAY!!!

We'll be heading off to Guangzhou today, provided the civil affairs office has Christina's passport done (pray please).  We are so looking forward to the warmth and familiarity of Shamian Island.  Mary is especially looking forward to a cold iced tea at Lucy's!

Yesterday was a rather unexciting day (boring to a point) as it was cold and dreary outside and we had no appointments or places to go.  Angela has been fighting off a cold and spent a good part of the day resting.  John did some reading.   The kids watched TV and wrestled.  We finally headed out later in the afternoon.  Another adoptive family that knows Angela came over to our hotel and we all went to dinner together.  We then went down to the "walking street" so the gals could get some glazed strawberries on a stick.  On the way back to the hotel, we were walking into a stiff, cold headwind.  I (John) popped Christina up on my shoulders and picked up the pace-- her short legs have trouble keeping up sometimes :-)   We ended up bouncing and singing and laughing all the way back to the hotel.  It was a good bonding experience for us!

Mary had a rough night, as something she ate didn't agree with her.  She felt a bit better this morning, and ate a little toast for breakfast.  Hopefully the rest of the day will see her getting her strength back.  Perhaps this is what she had trouble with??? ADDENDUM: THE PICS I TRIED TO POST DIDN'T WORK. I'LL FORWARD THEM TO CAITLIN AND SHE CAN UPLOAD THEM. SORRY. THE PIC I INTENDED TO SHOW HERE WAS A CHICKEN DISH LOADED WITH HOT PEPPERS. :-)

  1. Hi! Just wanted to say Hi. The pics aren't showing up, but I see you just now posted a minute ago. I'm really enjoying the updates, and just thrilled at how all these miracles have come together for you all. God is so good, and He is using this to show us all how His hand is in everything! :)

    I hope you get safely and smoothly to Guangzhou today!
    Love, Sher
