Hello everyone! Jill's sister, Lynn, here. They have made it to Guangzhou safe and sound. Jill is having problems updating the blog from there. She said she is keeping her facebook page up to date. Today was mom's birthday. The hotel gave her a card and a cake - "Happy Birthday Zernia Kathleen Helen". We have been able to Skype with them. Bethany is full of giggles and energy. Macie told us she is busy talking in Chinese to Bethany and everyone else and then repeating it all for Nana and Jill. What a great helper! We can't wait until they get home on Friday! I think we will have a little caravan going to OHare.

Hi Jill-
I don't know if you will be able to see this message since you can't access Blogger. We had problems updating our blog in Guangzhou too...:(....when we went to Starbucks it there were 10 other folks with laptops there and the connection was slow. We stayed at the Victory this time and they told us that there was no internet access, we found out 2 days before we left that there was NO access in the rooms...but, that you could access it from the lobby...ugh! :) SO, if you are at the Victory go to the lobby. K am glad to hear that Bethany is doing well, she is adorable!

Hi Jill!

It is so nice to know that Bethany awakes with a smile. She seems like a happy little girl! We really liked Guanzghou and the Victory Hotel. The park that is next to it was a life saver for us with a 3 and a 4 year old! Take care and God bless. Doris

Hi Jill -

It's nice to some pictures and we're all awaiting you to come home with even more! Bethany looks very happy and I'm glad Macie has someone to tag-team with against the rest of you wild Waala's!
