More photos, sleep deprivation update
We tried to go to a “nice” dinner downstairs in the Food Street restaurant in the hotel, which specializes in Cantonese cuisine. Unfortunately, Andrew’s nap schedule was so contorted that by the time we got there he was a mess and inconsolable. So Lois had to finish up quick and take him upstairs, she herself being exhausted from a sleep-deprived night. The only consolation is that the food was at best edible: I suppose we’re spoiled from all the excellent Chinese cuisine in the Bay Area!
As any of y’all with kids knows, vacationing with kids is not easy. It throws everything off for the kids, including sleep schedules, routines, etc. And the result is a small bit of chaos. So please continue to pray for God to help us as parents to respond in wisdom to help the kids to enjoy our time here (so that we might enjoy our time as well).
To make up for the lack of blogging last night (though most of our readers were sleeping), check out some video footage of Emmaline from “Gotcha Day”.
Finally, here’s a few photos from yesterday, during which we acquired our official adoption decree (she’s ours!) and applied for notarized documentation and her Chinese passport. Enjoy!
