Beijing Day 2 and Day 3 Leaving for Changsha

We are loving being in China as a family, Day 2 Beijing we went to the great wall. The boys loved it!!!! It was a fun day exploring and walking on history. We took a Gondola ride up to the Great Wall, walked along the wall and tobagoned down.
 
Day 3 we just flew into Changsha and it is beautiful here. Very rural with rice fields and mountains. The city part has about 5 million people, but after being in Beijing it seems small town.
 
Tomorrow we get to meet Cora. We found out today our guide works with Love Without Boundaries and knows our sweet girl. She told us Cora (Pei Juan) is very excited to have a family and  that she can't wait. Be still this mamas heart. She also told us that she is a very sweet girl and loves little children.
 
Pray for Cora tomorrow and our family. Love to all!!!!
