Just waking up on Thursday, we'll see what today brings, she has allowed me to give her milk and touch her leg (without waving me off, or making this big scrunchy face she gives me when she wants me gone lol), and she is smiling slightly at me, so baby steps!! She is very much like her Momma NOT a morning person, so to be so warm to me so early is a great sign! Two more days here and we get to join the rest of our group, we LONG for that day.. a few extra prayers for us today, would be greatly appreciated!! this is our HUMP day ... 1/2 way there but so ready to be done! Tomorrow will be very busy with gather paperwork, and going to the airport, it will fly but today is our last isolated empty day. We are going to venture out for a nice long walk to this little outside village in Wuhan, get a taste of her culture... we've had enough of the 'taste' of the air here - SMOG (remember the first day of the Beijing olympics! If you watched the coverage you know what I"M talking about lol my lungs are screaming for mercy). We had a long day yesterday with many trials and tribulations -- but also TRIUMPHS! This is far harder than either of us ever imagined, but I think that is good that we didn't come with any knowledge of what to expect - we are just taking it moment by moment, prayerfully encountering all that this adventure holds. We just had a little impromptu game of roll the car back and forth - that was fun!! Ok off to shower, and begin our day -- thank you again for all your words of encouragement and prayers - we'd be lost without them!!!
