Sunday in Guangzhou

Today we went to church which was a very cool & moving experience. The church was a Christian church which is one of the few governent permitted Christian churches. The service was half English & half Chinese. We then had reservations for some fancy Thai restaurant which Lance & Claire decided to forgo. I'm glad I tried it, but not again. We then had some shopping time & I'm getting good at negotiating. There are many gifts to be had upon our return. Can you actually believe I bought a diaper bag? We took lots of pictures in our hotel, which is beautiful. Tomorrow our guides go to the US consulate to drop off our final adoption paperwork, so we are to stay in the room in case the consulate has questions. Tuesday we actually go to the consulate & get sworn in as her parents! Wednesday, it's on our way to Memphis!
Jesse, I hope you are having a great weekend & just a few more days until we come home with your sister! We love you very, very, much! Dad got you something very cool today......You'll have to wait & see what it is!

Love, Gretchen
