We finally are able to get into yahoo to blog, but it is through the business center at the hotel, so it will be breif since it is  pay by minute.   But I have every day written down and will update hopefully when we get to guangzhou:)  Sorry for any typos, I have a little cutie helping me!
Thank you for all of you prayers and best wishes, it meant a lot to read some emails this morning!
I am just going to go over yesterday since really that is the day that we all want to hear about!  I have dreamt about meeting Min for months.  Some dreams were good, some were bad.  I was admittedly nervous walking in to the adoption affairs center to meet her knowing that she had had a long car ride and could very well freak out when she met us or melt down.  So DH and I were just praying that she would be comforted and we would know how to best help her.  In my best dreams and imaginations of the day, it was no where near as wonderful as it really was.  We walked into a glass room and there she was with her caregivers.  She smiled at us and said Ni Hao mama Ni hao Baba.  We got hugs and kisses.  She LOVED  her doll.  She was happy and smiling the whole time and when it was time to go took my hand and walked out of the building.  She has been happy the whole time we have had her.  She is WAY cuter than even the pictures.  We can't sorry, but I will get them up as soon as we can.  She is a dream so far and we are reveling in it.  She shares her crackers, is extremely neat and tidy, is potty trained, took a shower this morning and loves watching the videos of her geges  (brothers)  HEr name is also pronounces meanmean:)
She is doing so well.  We are even more head over heels in love.  Thank you so much for your prayers they are so amazingly being answered!
Kimberly, when we told the orphange director your daughter had a family and a mom who loved her very much, the orphanage workers all clapped:)  We are trying to go to the orphanage but are still not sure if they will let us.
Thanks for following us on our journey:)
