Today was a very rainy day. Lydia and I spent the day in the room. She is beginning to "wake up." She has a sweet disposition and has yet to actually cry when she is hungry. She just waits on me to pad around the room getting things together and mix her bottle. We are left to guess that she has learned in the past that crying didn't help, so a quiet patience was learned. She is such a sweetheart! Daddy got to visit the Ten Wang Pavilion in the rain! Then he was taken by our guide to a "reputable" masage salon. He got the 1 hour work over and has returned refreshed. All for the bargain price of about $12. Lydia continues to have congestion in her head and chest and Sally (guide) was able to obtain American antibiotics for us. We love her very much. She speaks excellent English and has seen to our every need. Although most of todays photos speak for themselves, the photo of the clothes is what she was wearing when we got her. It was not all that cold, but she was bundled like an Eskimo. The pants are split pants. The city photo is the view from our window. As I type this post Lydia is playing on the floor with Daddy. She is sitting up for longer periods of time and is scooting across the floor laying on her back and pushing herself with her feet. We feel so blessed have this sweet baby girl. At nearly 44 for both of us it has taken some getting used to, but we wouldn't change it for anything in the world. Tomorrow we are off to Guangzhou, the las leg of this journey on this side of the world. Thanks again for the the e-mails, posts...etc. It means so much to hear from you while we are so far from home. Pray for us as we travel tomorrow. We are praying for all of you.
