Our Week in Guangzhou

This has been a great week in GZ!
We have enjoyed getting to know our girls. 
They are such sweet blessings and seem to be loving having a family. 

The Garden Hotel has been absolutely fabulous. 
A mama could get spoiled here. 

We have had the most wonderful travel group. 
We've made great new friends and seen their families integrated with sweet new children. 

We've kept busy everyday which has helped this third week pass more quickly. 
Saturday the girls had their medicals. 
Sunday our group went shopping in GZ. 
Monday our family visited an American run foster home that is dear to
our hearts and even met and held the little boy we sponsor. 
Tuesday most of our group went to Safari Park (highly recommend). 
Wednesday we had our consulate appointment and then ate dinner with 
our group at a Mexican restaurant. 
Today our group visited Shamian Island,
and this afternoon we received the girls' US visas!!!

Tomorrow (drumroll please) we begin the 25 hour journey home!
I can't wait to see all my children! 

It has been a wonderful trip, 
and the best part, of course, is we have two new precious daughters. 
We can't wait to get them home to begin the 
real journey as The Lord grafts them ever so wonderfully into our family.

SOOO great to see some of your precious family! The girls look so cute! I know that you guys are so excited to be headed home! Man, if I didn't see an update today, I thought..."I am going to have to fly over there and make sure everything is okay!!" :-)
Praise the Lord for your newest additions and for a safe, almost finished trip!
