"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

Update of the last few days...

We had a free day on Thursday; therefore, we didn't do a lot, took a nice stroll around the island.

Friday morning, we visited Six Banyan temple - a Buddhist temple. We got to talk a tour of the place and our guide explained the various Buddha’s found around the place and then our adopted children were blessed by one of the monks. It was neat to learn about and a special piece of China for them to experience, not that our boys will remember it.

 After the temple, we went to a jade store. I didn't purchase anything since we had already done that in Beijing. After the store though we headed to lunch at restaurant that specializes in dim sum and that is where Jason met us upon his arrival in Guangzhou!!! I was soooo very glad to see him and the boys have taken to Jason well!!!! YAY!!!

My mom and aunt Sharon took off on a train to Hong Kong Friday evening and left on a plane this morning.  They should be arriving back in the US in about an hour. I am so thankful that the Lord blessed me with their presence. They were a HUGE help.

 Today, we and 5 other families had to take our kids for their medical exams. The boys did really well considering the chaos of people and wait we endured. We did learn of an additional, unconcerning issue about Corban, during the examination that they wanted to be sure we were aware of but other than that, all went well. They each had to be administered the TB test before we left which we will find out the results for on Monday.
The boy's jealousy of each other is beginning to show. We are doing our best to try to be fair to both of them, not always easy to do with their differing needs.

 Tonight we went to dinner at a Cantonese restaurant with another family - we joked about the food on the menu and had some great laughs! Making great memories in China!!!!
