Today we fly to Guangzhou. We ahve spent the morning gathering, packing, and weighing. Lydia has been so sweet. Her congestion continues to improve, thank you all for the much needed prayer. It's a vulnerable feeling to have a sick child in a foreign country. She has been laughing and smiling. Just plain ole sweet! She readily makes eye contact and initiates interaction from both of us. Although she has a preference for Mark, she has learned that I'm not so bad either. She sits up for longer and longer periods of time. She has attempted to roll over, I feel she actually could, but does not want to end up on her tummy. She hates it! I forgot to mention that Mark got to visit a flea market yesterday. He said it was unreal... ducks tiedtogether, frogs in baskets, snakes in baskets, every internal organ you can imagine from all manner of animals ...etc. You get the picture. There was also dog on the menu in the hotel resteraunt, I kid you not! We are beginning to get a little homesick. I am looking forward to not having to boil water for everything. We have a very busy first day in GZ, but we will try to post as soon as we can. We are not going to be at the White Swan. :-( Instead we are at the Holiday Inn Shifu. I'm tod that the rooms are much bigger and accomodating. Don't stop praying now... we're almost home! The photos of the newspaper is actually Lydia's finding add the govt. places to search for her family. The doctor is taking blood pressure and pulse for free at a park. I tried to upload a video of Lydia but it would not go through. I'll try again later tonight.
