Day 6 in China - Well, the last day btt (that's before the twins) is coming to a close for Tara & Dirk. They met the rest of the families from their group and "enjoyed" another great Chinese lunch. They also learned that they will be getting the girls at 11:00 Tuesday morning (that will be midnight Monday night for us). They leave very early tomorrow morning for Nanchang where they will meet the girls so were off to bed.

Technology is wonderful, they spent time today at the local Starbucks sipping coffee and checking their email, reading all of your great messages and best wishes. Don't forget that you can send them a message from the Blog by clicking on one of the Comments links and then select Anonymous as an identity. This way you don't have to get a log in. Don't forget to leave your name etc at the bottom of your message. We have also been talking with them by phone most every day. It's much easier and cheaper to call China with a calling card but calling from China is much more expensive.

Tonight they enjoyed a Western Buffet (that's not a cowboy buffet, just American :-) They were able to have steak which made Tara very happy! They have finally sent the "missing" pictures from Day 3 but I didn't see any pictures taken from the top! Guess we'll just have to wait for those certificates but I have heard there is a lot of counterfeiting that goes on in China so who REALLY knows. I will post these pictures later today.

Only one more sleep for Tara and Dirk before they get the twins and we won't even have to do that -- time is wonderful when they have to wait through a night and we'll get to see them (through pictures) before we go to bed tonight. They have promised they will call and send pictures as soon as possible after the get the girls so I will post as soon as I have them.
