I am traveling to China to meet my new baby sister Elizabeth YunDan. She was born on January 21, 2008. I'm going on November 19th and getting back on December 5th. I'm traveling with my family. I'm going to visit the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and 2008 Olympics.
We went to the Orphanage today and gave the Director and Assistant Director presents such as toothbrushes and clothes.
For the nannies we gave them lipstick. We fed the older babies candies. I felt really sad because this is all they have in their life. We saw a lot of older children with cleft palates and they need surgery and families to adopt them. Cleft palate is a condition where the roof of the mouth doesn't come together completely which leaves a hole between the mouth and the nasal sinuses.
While we were at the orphanage, we received Dan-Dan's finding clothes. These are clothes she was wearing when they found her.
We also visited Dan-Dan's finding place which used to be a wedding picture studio, but they moved about a month ago.
