Thank You!

Thank you, my friends, for all your comments.  Your encouraging words of wisdom are greatly appreciated.  We are off to Guangzhou this morning.  Our flight leaves at 10:15 am.  We will ask our driver to take us to the Garden Hotel so that Parker can see a doctor.  I think we'll be ok without the expedited visa.  He will most likely feel better once we get some antibiotics (that I've at least heard of) and a couple of breating treatments in him. 
Reading your comments this morning made my heart smile.  Parker had a rough night last night.  He must have had a lot of bad dreams because he was scratching, punching, and kicking in his sleep.  Needless to say, today I wish I was in Hong Kong so I could take one of those ladies promising a good massage up on their offer.  At this point, I'd lie down on that dirty old street for some relief! 
Parker's behavior escalated all evening last night.  He is now screaming when he doesn't get what he wants.  He is still yelling at both of us in Chinese and pointing that little finger at us.  Sometimes he makes this little sucking through his teeth sound as he looks away, kind of like 'whatever'.  I know for sure it's not a medicine thing now.  But we do also feel like he is getting frustrated because we don't understand what he is telling us.  Of course, no matter what he says, we just say "uh huh" or "ok" and I'm sure he's just thinking, "That's not the answer I'm looking for, guys!!!!"  We're using our Baby Signs book ALL the time as well as referrencing our Positive Discipline for Toddlers like its on the Bestseller List!  We'll make it!
Thanks for your prayers and comments.  We love y'all!


  1. Hey You! So keep on using that book- remember he's like a little wild animal right now. I'm sure the other ladies who have background in adoptive kid behavior will provide more uh... assistance but I do have first hand knowledge on just plain ol' wild little kids. ha!
    Don't give up- it takes 6 weeks to change a behavior- you can do this! God has sent you and V. to him for a reason- there's no such thing as coincidence.
    We'll get your decorations up for you soon- and I'll come back and re-hang everything right after Parker tears it all down to the ground. Aren't you glad you don't have venitian blinds?
    Just think about :For greater things have yet to come,And greater things are still to be done in this City
    And one more- Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. – John 14:27
    It's gonna be good- God doesn't play tricks. :)

  2. So, that harmonious period was pretty nice while it lasted! I hope you can get some good help for Parker in Guangzhou and that he'll start to clear up soon. There's nothing worse than a sick baby; especially when you're in a third world country! Will keep you in my prayers for healing for Parker and I hope you're able to have a nice relaxing time in Guangzhou. Happy Thanksgiving!
