We met our guide at 9 am to check out of our hotel and to head to the Civil Affairs Office to finalized Aliyah's adoption. We just signed a few things, answered some simple questions and took a few pictures and just like that Aliyah was ours.
After that we did some touring of West L*ke in Hangzh*u while we waited for the Notary Office to finish some of our paperwork that we needed for our trip to Wenzh*u. Aliyah cried herself to sleep as we walked around the lake. It was so hot but simply beautiful.
We will meet our guide at 8:15 tomorrow morning so we can check out of our hotel and go process the passport paperwork, which should take about 2 hours. We HOPE to be be on the road by noon and back in Hangzh*u by 6pm tonight.
We have some more tours scheduled for Thrusday but since Aliyah is having such a hard time we will be canceling those so we can just hang out and try to get some rest. Please continue to pray for us as we have one very, sad and scared little girl.
