Tuesday is THE day!!!

I found out today that when we arrive in Guangzhou tomorrow that we will go to the hotel, have lunch and then go to Civil Affairs to pick up our little girls!!!! Hopefully, I will have a picture or two posted tomorrow when you wake up!!

Today was great!! We went to the forbidden city --- very interesting architecture and history and beautiful. The great wall was GREAT!! I walked up about the distance of going up to the top of Squaw peak and back down. Amazing how long that thing is!! I had to laugh at someone's comment that didn't want to go up further -- it keeps going and all looks the same....All the same it was beautiful and a great thing to be on and experience.

I met Jeff and Amy tonight along with another couple that I have kept up with on email but had never met in person. We went to a little outdoor restaurant and had pizza. It was really nice. The weather here has been perfect -- warm, but not very humid at all. I think Guangzhou is much more so.

We leave tomorrow morning about 6:45 from the hotel and should get to Guanzhou around 11 or so.

I'm tired now so I'm going to go to bed!! :=)

I'm sure everyone here is waiting as excitedly as I am to see little Alice! I hope you are both able to have a "gotcha day" that exceeds all of your expectations. Thinking of you often!--Christina in MD
