Recap of Day Three & Four in Guangzhou

Hello Everybody (Adam here).  Robin ran into some computer issues last night, while trying to post the blog. Sorry for the long gap in info - everything is going smoothly over here.  I'll load part of her saved message, then post some pictures.
Recap of Day Three & Four in Guangzhou:
On day three in Guangzhou we had our very important (CA) Consulate Appointment.  Some of you may remember that this was the last and final straw that drove our journey to China.  It is kind of funny but our job during this appointment time was to stay in our hotel room from 10am until 11:30am.  We had to be in our rooms in case our guide Jason had any issues arise.  Jason was the one who actually went to the appointment for us as our rep.  During this time we received a call from his stating that everything went well and the only thing left to do was to go to the US Consulate the next day to sign some paperwork and pledge our oath that all information given was true.  After the call was finished we then changed clothes and went to the lobby of the White Swan to do the infamous "red couch" photos.  I am including some of these for you to see.  The photos went well and Pinghe did great during the photos of just the adopted children.  I was a little concerned that he wouldn't want to sit there without one of us but it was no big deal for him.  He was surrounded by cute little girls so I guess it wasn't very intimidating. 
For the afternoon time we got together with another family that we have really gotten to know and love to play games.  They have four older children and have just adopted a precious little two year old girl.  You will notice her on the red couch sitting to the left of Pinghe.  She is the cutest little thing.  We ended the day with a dinner cruise that went up and back on the coast of the island where our hotel is located.  Pinghe loves boats so we couldn't pass up the opportunity to take him on one.  These boats are beautiful at night and have lights all over them.
