China days 9-10

The Safari Zoo was really nice and pandas were the highlight. Ivy wants to grow up and be one of those people dressed up in a big panda costume who shakes all the kids' hands. Apparently the heat, humidity, and stickiness from bug spray didn't phase her. William was thrilled with every sight.

This morning was very stressful as we spent hours in a room with all of our group and kids at the U.S. Consulate. The computer system that processes the visas and exchanges information with Washington was only working intermittently. Dan had to go back later in the day to complete the process. They are not guaranteeing anything, but said there is still time to get the Visa tomorrow. Without that in hand we miss our flights home. Trusting it will work out.

Today Will begged to leave the room with Dan when he went to pick up dinner. Twice later when Dan left again he cried! This is good news as previously he told the guide he was scared of  Daddy because he was too tall, looks like Superman, and has hair on his legs. The changes in him each day have been shocking. He is starting to really enjoy us!

Because all I have to do is look at your family and see how perfectly the LORD fit you all together.I have been struggling with all that's going on in the world and the LORD showed me such sublime beauty,His beauty,through your family and this precious adoption of William.The LORD is still creating such beauty,such as this, in a hostile world.
