Trouble posting

Everything is going fine except for the fact we can't access our blog from our hotel. Right now I am posting from a coffee shop, but the computer is in chinese. Hopefully I will be able to type and post pictures even though everything is in chinese. Lily is doing good and adjusting very well. The first day she was missing her foster mother and cried her self to sleep. She is becoming very attached to Nick. Amy is not liking this but she realizes that she needs to look to someone when she needs comfort and Nick is doing an awesome job of doing that. Anyway we are in Funzou for the next four days before going to guanchow. I will try to post from this coffee shop again Wednesday if this works.

We made it to Hong Kong

It was a very long trip, but we did make it fine. Amy handled the plane trip with no problem. I am not going to post alot since we have to get up early in the morning. Hopefully I will have more time to post pictures tomorrow.

The first picture was on the plane to Hong Kong. The speed and outside temp. kind of freaked Amy out, but she did fine. Will post again tomorrow.

The Shower

On July 1st my family had a shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Lily, and I cannot tell you how much it meant. It was a ladybug theme and they did such a great job!! Before people started coming we put on a cd my sister in law had bought of Chinese songs, it kind of hit me all at once, this was really happening!!!! After waiting 2 1/2 years it was kind of an emotional rush I wasn't expecting and I felt so truly blessed.

On the day her pictures arrived my desk top calender said these words which I found so appropriate, "Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fufilled is a tree of life." Proverbs 13:12

Couple pictures from the shower, all I could say was, WOW!!!!
Thank you so much everyone!!!!!!
