Guangzhou is the closest thing to home in China... most adoptive families are so happy to finally make it here. Warm and pretty Westernized. We had a great flight here last evening, arriving @ The Garden Hotel about 8:30~
Evie was the perfect traveler... eating everything they gave us and sitting right in my lap taking it all in. Payne had a little issue with the seatbelt but ended up doing well too.
This morning we went down for the breakfast buffet and ran into lots of friends here adopting as well. Such a good feeling to be surrounded by sweet families. Afterwards we met other Lifeline families in the lobby togo for our Medical Exams~
Medicals are now done in a new building which is supposed to be a lot better but just had a lot more people there at one time. :) It was all good though and we were all thankful to get that step completed~
We took our two littles through three stations...
Weight and height...
Evie did not like any of it one bit~
Payne was the brave big brother to the rescue!~
The doctor said we had two beautiful children with very minor special needs... thank You Jesus!~
The worst part... the blood draw to test for TB. They took each one away into a room and Payne came out like a champ!~
Right into his baba's arms~
and was all kisses~
Poor Evie is so tiny they had to do two draws to get enough blood. She WAS NOT happy when they brought her out. Lots of people complained that they took them away but I think it helped that we weren't in there. They came back to us and we were not the bad guys~
Completely worn out and sweating like crazy~
Mama's baby safe back in her arms~
On the way home we ran by the grocery for a few items~
Then back for a little playtime and nap~
I think she's coming around don't you?
Thankful for a sweet day!
