We left Wuhan, Hubei Province bright and early on Valentine's day. Our guide, Cindy was already at the airport so I volunteered to make sure everyone was on the bus and I was dying to get my hands on her microphone. I gave alittle speech as we left Hubei. It was sad to leave Katie's province. We really enjoyed our stay in Wuhan. We didn't get to visit her orphanage in Qichun. This something that I really wanted to do. Someday we will take Katie back to Hubei and we will visit Qichun and her finding place.
We arrived in Guangzhou and Dan took Katie right to get her visa picture taken while I checked us into The White Swan Hotel. We decided to treat ourselves and upgrade to a suite at The White Swan. After being in a regular Hotel room for 10 days we needed alittle more space. The White Swan was Beautiful. Guangzhou was warm about 70-75 degrees which was great. The shopping was amazing. Shop after shop lined the streets. After we checked into the White Swan we had some time to get settled and then we had to go and get Katie's physical exam. We also met back up with all 60 GWCA families. I was anxious to see my friends that I had said goodbye to in Beijing. I couldn't wait to meet there daughter's.
That night we celebrated Valentine's Day at Lucy's. It was a PERFECT Valentine's day as a family. I love Valentine's Day because it was my first date with Dan. We met at Aunt Margaret's funeral on Feb 6th.
