badminton, hackie sack, dancing, exercising, singing and playing instruments.
Today, I also had a taste of what it must feel like to be a celebrity.
Almost every person that walked by would either take a double take
or out and out stare at us.
A few would ask about our kids. John loved to tell them that we had 4 more at home, just to see the reaction. We met a man who attended Michigan State and knew about Chapel Hill.
After a nap in which we all slept, we went to visit a museum down from our hotel. When they were excavating to build our hotel, they discovered the tomb of a king. You can actually see the tomb, along with the remains and the artifacts that were buried along with the king. It is dated to one hundred years before Christ. It was very interesting.
This is a picture of the suit the king was buried in. It is made entirely of jade plates sewn together.
Tomorrow we have to stay in the room between 11 and 12, in case our advocate has any questions from the consulate. If there are none, the US will grant Elijah a visa to come home. There was a little concern about the wording on our home study and gov. approval. But today, our advocate said she thought we were ok. We are approved to adopt "healthy or special needs, including heart defect and missing digits". It has been said that the specific special need has to be listed. Susan says that the translation says,"healthy or special needs, for example heart defect and missing digits", so we should be fine. Regardless, if you get a chance, please pray that everything will be approved tomorrow.
