Day 8 with Ruthie!!

I haven't forgotten Day 7!! It was the day we visited the orphanage that Ruthie spent 18 months of her life. I want to spend more time on it, so I will post soon!!! 

So, today, we visited the Guangzhou Zoo and a shopping mall!! We have had such a great time with Ruthie! She is really warming up to everyone and keeps a constant smile on her face. I will say that she is a little fire cracker and loves loves her brother and sister!! She is a typical 18 month old baby girl!! She loves to be heard and loves to be seen! She is a party starter and loves to make sure that everyone is happy. I have enjoyed watching her share her toys and food with others. She let's us see more of her sweet personality every day. What a blessing she is to us!! God knew what he was doing when he chose her for us!! God love her!!! 

As we were leaving the zoo, another Chinese girl asked Hailey if she would take a picture with her. She felt like a ROCK STAR!! It was so funny, but I was too slow on getting my camera out. Boo!! 

Here are a few pics from the zoo!!

We decided to go shopping with some friends! We were looking for toys, silk dresses and other random things. We ended up buying a Chinese tea set, chopsticks, training chopsticks, Chinese traditional dresses for Hailey and Ruthie, Chinese dolls and some neat toys for Ruthie. She loves them!! Here are a few pics from the "mall" and our way home. 

Tomorrow is our Consulate Appointment to take oath and deliver our visa documents for Mao Si Dan (Ruthie or nickname "Dan Dan") Goodness, we love this sweet girl!! We will also go on a dinner cruise tomorrow night!! Just a few days left and we will be headed back to Alabama!! 

Blessings & Love,
