Where in China is Little T??

Dongguan City is in Guangdong Province which is in the southern part of China. The US Consulate is in Guangzhou which is just about 31 miles or so from Dongguan City.

I joined the Yahoo group for her orphanage and there are some people traveling soon. I've asked them to please see if they can take her picture if they visit the orphanage! Wow - wouldn't that be just amazing?? I would love to see how big she is now. The report we had was done back in July of 2007 so it's old. I misread it also - I thought she weighed 17 pounds but actually only weighed 15 pounds. What a peanut!!

Her care package will be ready to mail by this weekend. I've put in a few 18 month size dresses, a plush toy, a "who loves you" book with our pictures, and some candy for the nannies. I need to get some stickers and stuff for the other babies and I'll probably put a blanket in it for her too.

Here is a map and some pictures of her orphanage.

It looks like they take good care of the children there. :) It also looks like she will not have a long drive to Guangzhou so hopefully you'll be able to go to her orphanage as well.

Congratulations on receiving your LOA. Our daughter is also from this orphanage. We were able to visit the orphanage last August when we brought her home. The journey to bring home your daughter will be amazing!

Our daughter is from Guangdong also-Foshan. We were able to visit the orphanage and finding location and it was so nice staying at the same hotel the entire trip. Congrats!!!
