Day Two in China: Beijing

What a day, long but amazing. Got to see some great things from Tiananmen Square to Forbidden City to climbing the Great Wall. Went to the Jade Factory and ate at a great restaurant. Took a while to put these pictures up, so I'll close for now so you can see the pictures. Sorry they are backwards, newest ones are first, oh well I'll get the hang of this soon.

Tomorrow will be an early day, out in the lobby by 5:15 am, fly out to Nanchang at 7:40 am, arrive in Nanchang about 10:30ish, prepare to finally be handed Chynna at 3:30 pm. I will post updates and pictures again in Nanchang if I am able to connect to the internet. Please pray that Chynna has as smooth of a transition as possible. She will be leaving her foster family tomorrow to travel to the orphanage to then be brought to the hotel to her new Forever Family. It's definitely gonna be a long sad day for her and her Foster Family.

Until then, next post Gotcha Day!!!

I remember of it taking so long to load photos, but it is so worth it. After we got Gracie, I just loaded pics of her, that's what everyone wanted to see any way. Good luck on Gotcha Day. Can't wait to see your update. Blessings, Debbie
