Duane workin' it like a rock star

Entrance to the park

Today we went to a wonderful park that had a cable car to the top of the highest mountain in the city. It was great fun and we enjoyed looking at all the sites. Everything seems to be in bloom and flowers were everywhere. We encountered something we didn't even encounter last time we were here. Since it was sat. at the park it was filled with a huge group of school children. Mostly around 10-12 yr olds. They literally mobbed Duane like a rock star...please see following pictures. We could not get away from was absolutely amazing!!!!!!!

We then enjoyed a lunch of noodles made right in front of us. We ate with chopsticks since they had no forks and it was the best meal ever!!!! He was the most gracious host. Then we went to a HUGE mall type shopping. I found some wonderful bargins for my eldest daughter....since she reads this as well I can't tell what they me they are beautiful. We topped off our evening with a walk downtown and a lovely dinner.
How we have loved our time in China so far. It has been an experience we will never forget and the best is yet to come. We will be leaving on a FAST train tomorrow to Nanjing and then the glorious day will be mon when he is finally in our arms.

Sounds like daddy is getting a lot more attention than last time... I wish you could tell me what you encountered this time that you didn't last time! I don't know why you would post about cool things that you got me even if you knew that I would read this! See you soon!


Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
