let me just add

let me just add, to what the foster mother told her...she said DO NOT ever hang on people or sit on peoples laps it is wrong to be CLINGY.

So close but... so far away....

Lucy Mae is soooo very close to her mother... there is no other parental relationship that is sooo important than the love for and from the mama...  Lucy Mae is distant with me and only holds my hand when Donna gives her a small non-verbal cue (the you better do what I said look -- with a smile)... I'm sure this will pass.  Her foster parents not knowing her future prepared her for whatever came her way --  Independence.  The foster mom told her to never depend on no one (or men) and do everything for herself... Lucy Mae is doing what she was prepped for.... but I'm sure when we get home and sees how Lily Mae loves he DaDa -- she'll be a Daddy's girl in no time....  

Azithromycin (Z Pak) is Jeff's new friend...

Can you believe I'm sick with a blasted sinus infection... I could feel it coming on when we were flying out of Beijing... So I wondered to a Chinese pharmacy and I was in luck ("Murphy's Law") no one spoke English... So I made some motions to my nose -  they grabbed a box... Then I spoke in a Barry White tone voice... they grabbed another box... then for 10 minutes we went back and forth.   I was trying to explain that I wanted non-drowsy meds... We looked like we were playing charades!!!  Then they put those boxes back and came back with two more....  Then came the biggie question do you have Azithromycin????  They bought me a book about the size of a bible from the Middle Ages -- All the times I overlooked indexes in books trying to find what I  was looking for - shame on me.  This time I turned to the index... to the Z's... then my next lucky break happened... the text was too small -- I did not have my glasses.... so I squinted as if my life depended on it... then there it was... "Azithromycin"... no prescription... no co-pay... no doctor appointment (that's always two days away) all for $4.53 -- YEA!!!!!

this is a picture that is very much familiar to adoptive family and yet scary looking this is called a "Squatted potty" you do just that squat and pot,  it is crazy silly me was so worried about Lucy Mae and how to show her how to use it, (HAVE I LOST MY MIND, she is from here... she KNOWS how to use it she went right in there and knew how to hold her clothes and all, taught me a few things, LOL)

Today we did the medical testing.

Today we went to the medical building for testing and went through this
wonderful park, here are some scenes of China, today is a day that I can say
BEEN THERE DONE THAT, just four years ago with Lily Mae...same medical
