We also visited the1-2 year old group as one of the families in our group has a little girl that is in this age group. We all wanted to just take home these precious little ones. We loved seeing our precious daughter reach out to this babies.
We took this picture as we were leaving. Not sure what the sign says.
We also visited the spot where Brooke was found. She was very sick at the time and was placed outside of a middle school in a very busy area where she would be found quickly. I can't imagine how hard that must have been for her parents.
We walked around a large downtown shopping district today. It was much like 5th Ave in New York so we did not get much other than lunch and some mittens for Brooke. We will do more shopping in Guangzhou next week.
As I write this, Brooke is playing games on a tablet and Dennis is falling asleep on the bed. She has been so full of energy today.
She is gaining language so rapidly. She is using words like thank you and your welcome on a routine basis. She initiated a hug for the first time tonight. It was great.
Our guide told us that Brooke thinks our hotel is America so Dennis came up with the idea to do a chart and check off the days until we fly home to America. We have a ball along that is a globe so with the chart, the ball and Google Translate we explained what the next 10 days will be like. We will put a sticker on the chart each day to help her better prepare for her future.
She loves a bath but hates having her hair rinsed. We will have to work on that.
We are all doing well. Thanks for your notes and prayers.
