We made it to Beijing!!!!

I can't believe we are actually here! Sorry it took so long to post something but we had been traveling for almost 24 hours straight and then yesterday, we went non-stop from 9am-9pm touring. I will post more touring pictures tonight. Beijing is awesome! It's strange though because when you walk outside, the venders swarm you and try to get you to buy their stuff. People here are also not used to blondes so they keep staring. I also had one man run in front of me yesterday and take my picture!!! I felt like such a movie star. I am available for parties and weddings if anybody is interested. Anyway, today is the Great Wall which I am really looking forward too. Tomorrow, we leave Beijing for Guangzhou which is the province Gracies in. I can't believe that in two days, I am going to be a mom!! I can't wait.

My daughter was adopted from YangXi last July. Today we went to the CCAI picnic in CO and one of our two guides was at the picnic, she told me that Jocelyn will be your guide in Guangdong, she is GREAT you are in good hands. Good luck to you!!! Enjoy the time you have to bond with your child, I think we as adoptive parents are lucky to have two weeks without many interruptions to bond with our babies in China. Dawn mom to Sun adopted from YangXi 7/10/06 b. 11/2/05.
