Somehow I got a little behind on our photos. Right now we are waiting to leave our hotel for the train back to Hong Kong, but I wanted to post pics about the final step in the adoption process, our visit to the U.S. Consulate here in Guangzhou to obtain Ru's US visa, evidently, as told by the U.S. officer that interviewed us, the hardest piece of paper to get int he whole world, the one that makes Ru an bonafide U.S. Citizen the moment he touches U.S. soil.
Then we asked our guide to take us to a bookstore. I think I could have wandered around there for hours and hours! But we were able to purchase several books (in Chinese) that we think Ru can read.
