We we made our way to Tainan today. It was a pretty emotional but very very good day. Landon started screaming with excitement when we made it to SLC. He was so happy to see the caregivers and play with them as they showered him with love and gifts. The went through the picture album we brought and all ooh and ahhed over his pictures. He tried hard to mimic alot of what they would say to him in Chinese and their tone. They thought that was really cool. They said that he was always very smart and quick to learn. Always independent and strong willed, yup that is our kid! We were able to spend time with some of the babies but NO PICTURES ALOUD :( at all in the nursery. We wished that we could have shared with families what they let Judy share but they did not. Judy we didn't get to see Eric as he was out getting a shot, ouch. WE enjoyed our time in Tainan alot. We toured all over with the driver that Judy H. reccomended and he was sooo great. We took the high speed rail there and yes got on the wrong train back, lucky for us it was also going to Taipei :) We are so exhausted. Tomorrow we take it easy but tour around Taipei. We will head to 101 as well but not rushing anywhere. WE are suppose to have our pizza party with the Nicholsons and Dias's in just a bit. It was postponed until tonight. Still cant get pictures to upload and weird since we are in the same hotel as Jes and Randy LOL but you guys know me and pics, I post them. So I will keep trying! Only 2 days left and we meet our little girl. Oh, we saw amany kids fromteh schools out touring in Tainan today and it stopped our heart many tmes when we would see the little girls with similarities of Ti. We cant wait. But soon...
