We are definetly enjoying ourselves here on the island! Things have definetly taken an upswing! Will has decided diapers are not torture devices after all! This has lessened our anxiety so much! We can go in public without leaving puddles on the floor, which up to now has been out gift to China everywhere we go! :) Will no longer smells, and neither does our room! I NEVERNEVER dreamed I'd be happy about diapers! I hate diapers..swore I'd never buy them again...buy boy have been singing the praises of diapers the last few days! I hope the transition back to the regular toilet will happen quickly with some consistentcy...but for now they have made our lives much more joyful! AND much to our surprise and joy...Will has decided Mom's not so bad! I was fully prepared for nothing more than tiny babysteps until we got home...but I've decided Guangzhou has MAGIC air! I've gotten regular hugs and kisses...he will hold my hand and one night when he was upset he let me craddle him like a baby sing to him, stroke his hair and kiss his forehead for about 15 or 20 minutes!!! That was HUGE!!! He loves our guide Connie however and when she's around Mike nor I neither exist...she seems to love the kids so we've both decided it's fine for now. I think he enjoys having conversation with someone who understands him. He REALLY is an amazing sweet little guy!
We are also enjoying our new friendships alot and the opportunty to be OUTSIDE and see the city! We've seen a Buddist Temple and a Buddist cememony, a really wild herbal market and a brutally gruesome meat market...ate vetetarian that night! and today went to the pearl market and the pet market! Loved the puppies and kittens...and saw some "new Chinese Chirping Bunnies".....funny story to come later!
I CAN'T tell you guys how much your messages and emails ment after my "keepin it real post" My friends in and out of the adoption community are just amazing! I have a feeling the roller coaster ride maybe just beginning...we've rode it before and the ups and downs are quite exhausting for a while...but its the support our Faith that and the end result that help get you through! Thanks again :)
