We are still here:)  We can get WIFI but not internet on the Ipad so back in the business center.  We do not get to go to the orphanage so we are really sad about that.  Yes, Mary, they are thrilled about YiLin and your family, they knew you were adopting her so they were happy that you still are:)
Thank you so much for all of the emails and prayers, it means a lot to have them and to hear(read) English).  We got really, really spoiled in Beijing!!!  In many many ways.  Min's honeymoon is wearing off and she lijes to be a little naughty, she smiles bigger when she is getting in trouble!  Yesterday she didn't like Dad but today he is ok.  We had huge breakthrough on the second day, she was tired, said a real goodbye to caregivers at the adoption signing and smiles were a little slower in coming.  That night I asked her if she was sad, and the dam broke.  She cried and sobbed and then let me hold her and stared into my eyes and cried silent tears.  It was heart wrenching.  Then she smiled when we got her ready for bed.  She loves her wawa(doll)  and sleeps with her.  She is doing really good.  Last night we had been trying to get her to say please instead of just grabbing or pushing for something.  She did it and got a bunch of treats at the store.  Then we were going over colors and she said them ALL in Chinese and ENGLISH!!!  Then we said go to sleep in chinese and english and she mimiced so it became a fifteen minute joke before she would go to sleep.  Thanks again for the prayers!  Tomorrow we go to Guangzhou.  I am thrilled to sleep in a soft bed:)
