The countdown begins!

(Gary) 12/20/09

Breakfast of congee and steamed dumplings, then off to our Holt orientation. We met another family who is adopting from Guangzhou. We are the only two families here right now. We got updated information: she’s 90 cm tall, weighs 14 Kg and she has 18 teeth. She hasn’t been toilet trained yet and takes a bath every other day in Winter. She likes animals and had a pet dog. We also got updated pictures.

We also had a tour of the Forbidden City and tour of a silk factory. Mom bought herself and us a silk comforter and Lisa bought some material for a dress for Kate. I tried to barter my way to buying a Sumi-e brush and ink set but I couldn’t get the guy off $60, so I walked. Tomorrow, we fly to Hefei in Anhui province.

  1. Sounds like a smooth experience so far!?! A little like a day at school. Keep up your good spirits you are getting closer to "homecoming"

    Take care friends,
