Journey to China

13 February - Hanging out in Guangzhou, and more photos!

After a couple of days of relaxing, shopping, and hanging out, we're heading over to the US Consulate this afternoon for the Swearing In Ceremony, when Melissa will become a US Citizen! After the ceremony, we'll pick up her visa and head back to the hotel to pack for our flight tomorrow back to the US!

Shamian Island, the area in Guangzhou where our hotel is located, is beautiful, with lots of trees and flowers and a very nice park next to the river. Our hotel, The White Swan, is fabulous, and everywhere we go, we see other families with their adopted Chinese children. It's so much fun to see all the children and we are really enjoying spending time with Melissa. She loves to play with us and she laughs all the time! We've been having a great time together!

We haven't posted many photos, so we thought we'd post several from our entire trip so far. We'll be back in California on Thursday, February 14, so we probably won't post again until the weekend. Enjoy the photos and have a great Valentine's Day!
