Nanchang Day 3
Today was another wonderful day. Lydia is doing terrific. As you can see from the video, she love, love, loves her daddy!!! They were playing with toilet paper. She is a very laid back baby, and just rolls with the flow. She is making good eye contact and now cries when we put her down. Today we went to to the country side to see a typical foster home such as the one Lydia was in. We were also able to photopraph the seperate kitchen. As you can see it is very humble means, but the people in the community were quite happy. There is also a photo of a school that we were permitted to briefly tour. The classroom through the window was a 1st grade class. The little boy at the gate of the school was in trouble for not taking his studies seriously. China no longer uses corporal punishment. As we were driving down the street there came many buffalo being driven by a man with a stick. They appeared to know where to go. The sights, smells, and sounds are unforgettable. Our last stop was on "Pottery Street." Jiangxi is known for it's fine porcelean production. We were able to purchase a meaningful gift for Lydia from her home province. We are having a blast, but our hearts are hungry for home. we have what we came here for! Again, thank you so much for the e-mails, and blog comments, and facebook messages! Proverbs 25:25 says "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country." We can't wait to be home with all 3 of our children on our arms!
