Almost done! Our last post from China...

So, this will be our last post from China. The people of China have a special place in our hearts, not only because they gave us our daughters, but, because we love them, and want them to know who it was that lead us to our daughters - Jesus. Our guide in Guangzhou is going to church and reading the bible and wants to become a Christian. We talked to her a little bit today about it when we visited the Six Banyon Tree Temple. We will pray for her to completely understand, and will leave her our email address if she has questions she would like answered - pretty neat she would want to talk about it at a Buddist Temple!!

Today was our consulate swearing in ceremony. We went to the US Consulate, and acknowledged that all previous information submitted was true to the best of our knowledge, and they said congratulations, you have your new children. They gave us Allie's US VISA so she can enter the United States, and also, a packet to be opened when we go through customs in DC tomorrow evening.
YEAH!!! This time tomorrow night (our time), we will be on our last flight home!!! We can't wait!!

After the consulate appointment, we went to the White Swan and took the famous Red Couch photos. Enjoy a few pictures from the day...
