"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

2011 Nov 6 Day 7 Shanghai to Guangzhou

Sunday was a travel day.  We met our guide at 9:15am to head to the airport.  Emma helped us get checked in and then saw us off to the security check point.  We thanked her for all her help during our stay in Shanghai and parted ways.

Tegan did really well in the airport but once we were on the plane and it was time to buckle into his seat, he wasn't so happy. Unfortunately, he has to sit there doing his quite (thankfully) cry as I did my best to snuggle him into my side.  I tried really hard to distract him, I tried a new toy phone, Smarties and even a sucker, nothing won out.  Finally, once we were airborne, he calmed a bit and fell asleep. 

He snoozed for about 20 minutes or so and woke up, I then picked him up and snuggled him and he fell back to sleep for about another 40 minutes.  When he woke up his noodle lunch was awaiting him and we killed the remainder of the flight eating noodles.  Upon decent to landing, he again go upset but was calm once I asked him if he was ready to go bye bye as we approached our terminal.

We arrived at our hotel about 3:30pm, settled in and then went for a little walk around Shamian island.  Before heading back up to our rooms, we stopped by Subway for some "to go" subs.  Many of the same sandwiches that we have in the states but they sure don't taste quite the same.
