What an adventure !!

With the help of the Sanders family I have finally managed to get on to post. (THANKS RAY!!)
I know that Dave posted that I had safely arrived. Brenda and I have spent the last two days touring. First we went to Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden city and today we climbed the Great Wall of China and saw a Chinese acrobat show. We have also eaten Chinese food for every meal except breakfast. (I really want a cheeseburger.) China is an incredible place. I am scrambling to get my luggage packed, the camera and video camera charged because at 6am we are heading to our province. Our guide (Sherry) said that tomorrow after we arrive at the hotel we are given time to unpack, and the girls are being brought to the hotel. This was a surprise. I thought we had to meet them at a government building. I don't know if I will be able to sleep. It's really incredible to think that Mia-Faith's caregivers spent their last day with her and starting tomorrow she will spent the rest of her days as a Waala.

Shelly and Brenda:
Good morning from the USA and CMH. I am glad that the two of you made it to China and have gotten to do some tourist stuff. I am sure you are very excited to finally meet and see Mia-Faith in person. I had checked the "blog" when I got in and saw Dave's note and then as I was working on the computer thought I should check again and your new mesage had been posted.
I will let others know of the blog in case they would like to follow your travels.
I wish you both a safe trip and look forward to any new updates on your journey.
