On this day, we were meeting in the lobby of the hotel. The children were going to be brought to us. The orphanage did not want us to visit. They were concerned that we were carrying the Swine Flu. In the lobby, we eagerly awaited the arrival of our children. Veronica received a phone call. It was time. We all hustled into the parking lot. The children came out of a small compact car. The first children were being carried. We knew that was not our child. Then a child who was Qin Qin's age got out. She seemed nervous. Veronica went up to her and asked who we were. She said Mama and Baba. At this point, she got to meet her sisters.
|Meeting for the first time.|
This is Angie. We are starting to feel better. Kayla woke up sick this morning and our guide, Veronica, brought us some Chinese medicine that has stopped the vomiting and now Kayla is doing better. Veronica is the same guide we had with Michelle's adoption. Qin Qin is with us now and she is funny. Her and Michelle are already best friends and are going non stop. Qin Qin knows very little English, except for mother, father, hello. So this is going kind of slow. I ask her a question and she repeats exactly what I say, so we are getting no where fast. The guide has been helping us a lot though. Sean is watching to girls in the mall area while I am in the internet cafe.
