Sorry the updates have been so delayed. We have been very busy and Internet connection is very slow. Amelia would never allow us to get on the computer during her waking hours!!!!
Please send prayers for our little sweetie. She has visited the Doctor several times since we got her. They kept trying to say she had a cold, but I knew from the day we got her something was wrong with her breathing. Yesterday she had what appeared to be an acute asthma attack. Fortunately we were able to get her to the doctor in time to get a breathing treatment. She has another scheduled for today and hopefully they will do another before we leave.
She is in otherwise good health and believe me she has been checked many times. Her clinic visit had her weighing in at a whopping 15.8 pounds and 27.5 inches. She is free of any infectious disease that we know of. We think she had a bad cold before we got her that led to this bronchitis. Most likely she had underlying asthma. We will get that checked as soon as we get home!!!!!!!
The weather in Guangzhou is amazing. It is subtropical and if you could drink the water, and my family was close by, I could live here. This is the first place we have been that you could leave the hotel without a group and it be considered safe. We are so anxious to get home!!!!
Amelia has made several gains physically since we got her. She has already gained weight. She could eat 24/7! She can stand easier, she holds her head up better, she doesn't use her head as her second hand as much when trying to stand. We are so blessed. This child is a great match for our family. Thanks for the prayers.
