Good Morning from Guangzhou
Well today is a new day. Amy is feeling better, Brad, Haddie, and Joel are good today, chronic cough excepting (Smoke and Smog byproducts). Libi actually has looked Chinese the last couple of days because her eyes are so swollen. She seems to be a little better today though. Jack just came in a got some tylenol, but I think he is doing a little better as well. Jake and G-ma are MIA at the moment so we will count them on the good side due to optomism. That makes 8 on an upward trend, you can't argue the power of prayer. Thanks, we can surely feel your coverage.
Joel, Haddie and I had a good day yesterday of playing at the park and milling around the island. Grandma went with us for lunch into the city and we played on escaltors and stairs for a while after McDonalds for lunch. I think that Haddie's favorite thing to eat so far is a burger and fries. Of course... she is Libi's sister. I was up early looking for coffee and wireless this am, and found neither, but did get encouraged by a quick phone call.
Many have been asking about Haddie's TB test... she failed the skin test, but passed the X-Ray. She was very brave, and got a sucker for her courage. Today is the swearing ceremony at the Consulate. We look forward to that. There are so many families of mulitiple adoptive children here with us at the White Swan. It is amazing what a wide range of people go through this process. The most common theme is the a burden for the orphan, put on families by the one true God.
We appreciate your continued prayer, we are overwhelmed by the love and support you all have been to us. We are ready to be home with you all, so that we can get Haddie in her new environment. She is a beautiful young lady, who had lots of energy. You are all gonna love her.
