some thoughts

pics from Hong Kong

We arrived safely yesterday in Fuzhou. Fuzhou is a city with a population of about 2 million and is in Fujian province, near the East China Sea across from Taiwan. It is modern and prosperous, people here drive a lot of expensive cars. China does seem to be changing in many ways, at least it seems that way right now to me. Not the summers though, it's hot and humid, like a sauna outside. Jet lag seems to be kicking in for Grace and I. Dan never seems affected much by it. Today (Sunday am) I woke up at 2:30 am wide awake and ready to start the day! Yikes. I dozed on and off and thought about our day today until I got up at 6am. We meet our social worker at noon and meet our son at 3:30pm in the conference room of our hotel(the Lakeside). So far everything has gone quite smoothly, thank you for your continued prayers and thoughts for William. Next post will be pics of our little boy!
