Nanchang

We arrived in our hotel room in the province a few moments ago and I just wanted to quickly post while I had the chance. We were unable to access the blog for the past couple of days, but we did post on our yahoo group, along with some pictures, so hope you checked over there. I will try to post some pictures in a little while, from our very busy and exciting day in Beijing, seeing the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, among other things. The hotel is very nice and we walked in to see two cribs and stroller waiting for us! On the bus to the hotel, Zhou talked to us about tomorrow and how the morning will go...we will meet downstairs at 9:30 for breakfast and then walk across the street (to say it's a busy street is an understatement) to the adoption center to meet the babies, who will arrive around 10:30. The babies are coming from 7 different orphanages (all in Jiangxi), so may arrive at different times. It is unreal that this is happening - that we will be parents in about 12 hours from now! The excitement and the butterflies are building and there really are no words to capture what we are feeling. It's about to happen!

  20. Hope all is going well and the lack of pics is due to lack of blog access. I suspect many people whom you have never met (like me) are thinking of you all and wishing you well.

    Safe travels and with kind regards,

  21. Have you tried dumplings and roast ducks? They are the famous and traditional Beijing dieshes. And also bird's nest soup? Its a delicacy in China.

    Enjoy your days~~~
