Today was our medical appointment that is required before being able to travel to the U.S. I have to admit that I dreaded this a little bit, but Eli did great. The medicals are done in a different building than when we adopted Bella. It was very clean and even have pictures of Mickey Mouse on the floors ... very kid friendly. The doctor did comment how malnourished he is, which we knew that as soon as we got him. He is eating everything we put in front of him now, so we think his weight gain will be good in the weeks to come. Eli also had his picture taken for his Visa and he smiled for it. Normally when Michael pulls out the camera, the smiles disappear, but he smiled easily for the lady today.
This is the office where we went for the medical appointment
Michael went and completed more paperwork this afternoon to prepare for our Consulate appointment. I took Eli out to the garden area at our hotel. There is a kids play area and some fountains. Eli enjoys watching the water fountains and walking around in his new squeaky shoes.
We went back to Shamian Island this evening with the Wickersham family for dinner. They are a sweet family from Indiana, but who live and teach at the International school here in China. We have really enjoyed getting to know them and spending time with them. They have two girls the same age as our boys and they also just adopted a little boy named Josiah. We ate at Lucy's ... a popular restaurant near the White Swan that we ate at a lot on our last trip here.
The Pearl River was all lit up tonight and was very pretty
