Today has been a good day. We started the day with a leisurely shopping trip to Shamian Island. Mom, Anne, Kristen, Caroline, and I took a cab to the island. We ended up at Starbucks (again) for a snack. This afternoon I met with the other adoptive parents and our coordinators David and Elsie at the hotel to complete the seemingly endless paperwork that had to be done in order to get Caroline's immigrant visa. While I was doing that, the girls all took a nap. We ended the day with dinner in the hotel with another adoptive single mom from St. Louis and her little one. Oh, and Caroline stood on her own today and started immitating sounds that I was making. Caroline makes significant progress each and every day.
First time for Caroline to open a book.
