James 1:27 " Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. "

Avery Day!

Our guide picked us up from our hotel around 2pm to head to the Guangdong Civil Affairs office. When we got there our guide went to check in and Jamie looked over to another room and said I think I saw her. She had already arrived and as soon as our guide took care of a couple of things they brought her out to us. She didn't cry our act scared. She went to us and started playing with some of the toys we brought. We sat down by my mom and Carsen and she saw the ipad Carsen had. She immediately tried to "help" him with the ipad. We signed some papers, talked to the lady from her orphanage, and took some pictures and we were on our way. Next stop was the Carrefour for needed supplies of diapers, formula, water and snacks for the kids. Then back to the hotel.

She is very curious...looked out the window while riding through the city, walks around the hotel room checking everything out and when food comes out she comes right over and will try anything. She is eating and drinking good for us. She has not had a lot of variety of food, but so far she has liked pretty much everything and is willing to try anything. We have gotten a few smiles and giggles, but you can tell she is still on guard. She went to sleep around 8:30 by herself and is still sleeping now. Today we are going back to the Civil Affairs office to finalize the paperwork.
