So we made it to Guangzhou safely.
I wish I could say that Addy-Kate really enjoyed her first airplane ride, but unfortunately she did not:(
We had to wake her up rather early this morning to head to the airport.
One thing we have learned about our girl is that she is NOT a morning person;) She needs a little time to wake up each day, and likes to do so slowly;)
Anyway, I think she was still a little tired and just couldn't get comfortable on the plane.
She has a little cold too, so I'm wondering if that had anything to do with her irritability.
Finally, with only about 15 minutes left on our two and a half hour flight, she decided to take a snooze;) Bless her heart! After our flight today though, Shane and I are getting a little more nervous about that LONG 15 hour ride home we have coming up in less than a week. Please say a little prayer for us, if you don't mind! We sure could use it;)
Also, could you say a little prayer for my kids back home too?? We got a call from my sisters a few minutes ago and they said Riley just starting throwing up:( Oh y'all...I cried when I heard the news. It's hard enough being away from my kids when they are healthy, but it just breaks my heart to know that one of them is sick! I HATE not being there to care for them!!! Please pray this bug passes QUICKLY and that no one else will get it.The stomach bug seems so contagious:(
Anyway, the rest of our day today was spent settling in to our new hotel room. We are staying at the Garden in Guangzhou which is just beautiful.
We took a little walk outside this afternoon just to become acquainted with our new surroundings. As we strolled around, we kept our eyes out for local places to eat that may serve food which remind us of home. Today, we found a Pizza Hut!!!
We went in and ordered our favorite Hawaiian pizza topped with loads of ham and pineapple. It was absolutely DELICIOUS and Addy-Kate loved it too!!
Tomorrow morning, we will meet our guide to do a little sight-seeing and shopping. We will be joined by another adoptive family who is here with our agency too. We are already looking forward to a GREAT day;)
