Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Tomorrow Beijing!  Today was our last full day in Guangzhou.  We leave after our visiting the Consulate tomorrow.  Of course we had originally planned on Mina traveling with us, and I was really looking forward to our trip to Beijing, as I so wanted to have a photo of both of my "China girls" on the Great wall.  We will be in Beijing for 2 days. Right now I just want to be home with all my babies.  I am so homesick for my kids, I feel heartbroken.  I know I will appreciate the Beijing experience once we are home. It is a beautiful city, I think I will look at it with different eyes this year knowing Collin will be living there as an exchange student next year.  He is so brave, I don't think I could do it.  We will be doing a lot of traveling in the next few days we would appreciate your prayers.  


If you can get past the drool this is the cutest photo ever. 
Don't know where she picked up this habit, talking on the phone while waiting for our next appointment. 




In the lobby of the famous White Swan Hotel. 

Oh, those cheeks, who could resist. 

The "Red Couch" photo, a China adoption must.  I don't know why we have to put them through it.  
"Hey, if you stop crying they will let us outta here" 
Our entire travel group, what an awesome group of people.  We are so lucky to be sharing this amazing experience with all of these fun families.

When we visited Dongguan, we noticed that many many of the nannies had cell phones. Lillie knew all about them, too...and carries one in her back pocket much of the time. :) You're almost home!!!! Hope you enjoy Beijing!
