We found a play room, by Stefan

After getting lost in Guangzhou trying to find McDonald's, we finally made it back to Lucy's Restaurant (we've been here 3 days and have eaten there 3 times and Subway twice). At Lucy's, you can get some resembling an American style meal with a drink for about $7-8 per person.

Earlier in the day, Jordan and I were looking for a courtyard that is accessible from the third floor and found that there was a "Play Palace" on that floor too. Although far from a palace, it was right up Taylor's alley. She enjoyed rocking on her horse and sliding on the slide. Joy really thinks she'll like Hershey Park!

Regarding the adoption progress today, we went back to the health clinic to have them see if she responded to the TB test (scratch from Saturday). She had a reaction which required a $30 chest X-ray. Thankfully, the results were negative. It is not uncommon to have a reaction, but it is stressful until you know that the chest X-ray is clear.

If you've been following our blog, we'd really enjoy hearing from you. Please send us an email, because Saturday is a long way off and we'd really enjoy answering questions or just hear about what you've been doing lately.

Tuesday is a free day for us. I think we're doing some photos and then some further exploration of Guangzhou.

We are thinking of you and praying for you at MCCS. Can't wait to see your Taylor in person. She looks like a real cutie!

I'm a follower! I've got your blog bookmarked and visit it daily to see how Taylor is doing and what you guys are doing on your trip. At home, we're sweating when the new shared list will come out. It's already a week "overdue" according to when it was most likely to come out. With nsn referrals being delayed, I can't help but worry that maybe they are holding back the shared list as well????? So anxious to see our little one's face and start planning our own trip to China. :)
