Day 9 and 10 - garden hotel and Consulate Appt


Yesterday was our  'free' day in Guangzhou. It was rainy and cold so we had to he creative with our Christmas activities. The kids had been up since 5 so it's a lot of time to burn! We are meeting many other adoptive families while we here as well. Its a great experience for the girls to see all these kids being adopted to families all over the US.

Today we had our consulate appointment and closed out this half of the trip. Luke will be a US citizen in a week when we land in Detroit!

The remainder of the trip turns to Emma and learning as much about her history as possible. I leave tomorrow for beijing with just her and jake. We meet Matt in kunming on Thursday!! We had assumed it would be warm in kunming but just heard it snowed there!! Most buildings don't have central heat so we will see how that goes !!  ;-)
