Feb. 5th - Crazy Day

Ok so, this was a very crazy day for us. We were up and out by 7am to go to Tian An Man Sq. and the Forbidden City. The square was nice, but the forbidden city was awesome. Long, but worth it I. Our guide, Julie was very good and very knowledgeable. We walked and walked and walked.


Now, because we have so much time to get to the airport, they take us to see how silk is made. Very interesting, I told our guide to take us to the airport and that's that. We check in and it felt nice to just sit . The flight was 2 hours and we got to Changsha at like 7pm. I had to use a Squatty Potty. Can't wait to tell you all about that experience. We get to the Dolton hotel which is really nice and ran down to eat something and came up and went to bed.

I didn't get to call Joseph yesterday(sunday ny time) and I was so upset. But from now on I don't care where I am or who I am with I will call my son and talk with him. Joseph, we love you and miss you a lot.

You sound like you are getting to see alot and experience a lot(maybe too much sometimes:)). I check your blog all the time. I am taking everything in and learning! We finally got our referral acceptance letter. We sent it back and were told it they get back to us in 2 weeks, we will leave on March 1st.
I CAN'T wait to hear all about Lily. I can't imagine how you are feeling because I am soooo anxious for you guys. Thanks for sharing your stories and your journey.
Take care-Rebecca

Lisa & Anthony,
IT'S Lily Rose day!!! YIPEE!! I am SO excited for you guys! I have been praying like crazy and can't wait to see you all together!
BTW, don't even read the crazy post from the person who won't even have the guts to sign it. I agree with Janine....you guys are so special and you are entitled to how you feel and to what you are experiencing. If they don't like it then I guess they don't need to read it so to them I say...GET LOST.
To you all I send my love and prayers,
Peggy

Hey...all you negative and anonoymous comment leaver's go find another blog to read if you don't like how Lisa is sharing her journey. I've never met Lisa personally but you can tell her family is what is most important in her life. So what if she's choosing to be a little "colorful" on her blog.....it's HER blog!!!

I can't believe people who don't know this family would come here to post hurtful comments.

You need to take your negative attitude elsewhere. Lisa is already a great mom and Lily Rose is blessed to be part of such a loving family.
