I sure wish I had pictures to share. Not only did I not get a chance to look for a usb cord because Sonya's been sick all day, but after the video was taken, my camera broke so i was not able to take any pictures at the government building after that. But fortunately our guide got some good pictures, and I will get them from her soon.
Unfortunately for Sonya she could not enjoy meeting her sister because she was slumped over on the couch the whole time. Earlier today she threw up and felt better once she did, but then went limp as a noodle. Feng Mei, as soon as she learned her jie jie was ill, tried to comfort her.
I am not being partial when I say Feng Mei is an exceptional child. She took to Randy and me right away, especially her baba. The first chance she got, she flung her arms around his neck and did not let go for a long time.
As a matter of fact, I left with her to get dinner with another family and on the walk there (since Sonya is asleep in bed), she started crying when an airplane went overhead, and she was saying, "Baba, Feng Mei" and then she was going on and on about the airplane and she would say, "Want to go to baba." Then she would point at the airplane and start to cry. I realized Feng Mei thought her baba was on the airplane and left without her. She was heartbroken. So I brought her back to the hotel and now Randy is down with her at the hotel restaurant to get her something to eat.
Btw, I can't be sure since Sonya did not stand next to her sister once, that Feng Mei is taller than Sonya and she definitely weighs more. In our case, the numbers they quoted for her height and weight were low not high as is typical.
Even though I am sad for Sonya that she missed out on the moment, it at least has given Randy and me time to bond on our own with her. But something like this makes it hard to be away from home. Since Sonya is not feeling well, I want her to be safe in her own bed.
Well, all the rest was written a couple of hours ago as I was typing before Randy came back to the room with Feng Mei. I will say that Feng Mei is a very polite, grateful child, and everything I show her, such as hair bows or pick up sticks etc, she adds, "Woooo" with the short o sound. I think that must mean "Wow" as she says it with such wonderment.
Well, got to get to bed now. We are adopting Feng Mei in the morning so we all need to get up early. Please pray that Sonya wakes up feeling well and back to her old self.
