We made it to Guangzhoa. It was a rough 2-hour plane ride. Maybe you all should start praying now for the 14 hour one we have coming up in a week. God is hearing your prayers. Believe me I can tell.
So, as I said before, every day our Suhn is getting a little brighter. Less crying, more calm. Today we (mainly Kory) have been able to get some laughs. A very welcome sound.
Lunch at Lucy's was great. She likes fries and ate most of mine. I didn't argue. Kory also started to teach her how to play drums with her silverware - she's gonna have great table manners when we get home.
A quick tip - if you ever order a burger or club sandwhich in Zhengzhoa remember to specifiy "no egg please." Unless of course, you like that sort of thing. And goldfish crackers in China are actually fish flavored. Just in case you wanted to know...
She is still not sure what to make of me. She knows she needs a mommy, but she wants her old one. A couple of times she has come to me, crying the whole time just to make sure I know she's not crazy about this arrangement. I don't mind. I'll take whatever she gives me. She even fell asleep in my arms twice yesterday. Progress. She will let me hold her as long as she has Kory in her line of vision. It is really hard to see her grieving and not be able to comfort her. Or to see her and Kory laughing together, try to join in and have her shut it off and start to cry.
Even so, every day is getting a little brighter for me too.
Again, thanks for your prayers and comments. They are getting us through. I would love to respond to everyone, but my outlook is not sending properly. I can send through webmail, but don't have an address book, so if you don't hear from me, that is why.
Back to food (I'm trying to make this as random as possible) - we've been eating better than I thought. Sweet and Sour Chicken in China tastes a lot like Sweet and Sour Chicken in the US (in my humble opinion). We've also been enjoying dumplings, noodles and pizza. It's been cheap and good.
Have I mentioned before how awesome our travel group is? Some of them are probably reading this. But then, a little fluff never hurt anyone. :)
