Update from Guangzhou


We are finally in Guangzhou ....
We had medical today (got a little nervous) ..They ask us many questions about Maggie's head .... No worries, she is officially an Oatsvall !!!!!






And just in case you were wondering yes she will fit right in ... Quite the attitude and her energy is off the charts .... Looks like NO rest for mama when we get home ...

She is attaching well each day ... We have one good meltdown each day where she screams and thrashes ... The movie Nemo seems to calm her down .... She also wants what she wants !!!!!!

We are happy to be in Guangzhou and one step closer to home ... I have attached a couple of pictures ...ENJOY and keep praying for us ....

P.S. They have a Starbucks around the corner (hint hint Nikki )

Glad to see that you were finally able to get Blogger to work! Thanks for emailing us updates while Blogger wasn't working.

Maggie is so beautiful! So sorry to hear that people are being rude and ugly about Maggie's head. Thank goodness you're there to bring her home where she will be loved by all of her family and friends! I'm sure you're ready to be home to officially introduce Ms. Maggie to everyone!
