It's evening in Beijing right now...I am looking out the 18th floor window to this crazy and very dirty city.  There is a lot of things about Beijing that I am not fond of, but I do love experiencing my daughters culture and the people are wonderful.  We were blocked from our blog and facebook, but figured out a way to by- pass security by logging onto a computer in the U.S.  Yesterday was our first full day here, and we were able to see the Great Wall.  It was absolutely breath-taking...

After climbing the wall, there was several vendors, and I found this cool hand-painted bottle.  It is actually painted on the inside of the bottle, and they put Hayley's name in English and Manderin.  I love it!  And Aidan and Cameron - I got you both something too, but I am not posting a picture of that! :-) You will have to wait till I get home.


This afternoon we had orientation, and they had updated pictures for us!  Yay!  Tomorrow we fly to Xian, Shaanxi, and we will then, meet our little girl!  It's finally here!  I am hoping to post by Sunday with pics/video of her.  Thank you all for your prayers and support!
