5:00 am

Hi Everyone!
It is 5 am and I am awake, so I thought I would give you a quick up date.  Clara Grace is doing well.  I feel she is a little shut down, but every once in awhile, I get a laugh out of her.
I am concerned about her hearing, and I did not bring my otoscope.  Not that much could be done before we get back to the states.
Right now, she is  definitely a mama's girl, she does not let me far from her sight and she keeps a close eye on Bryon (baba) not letting him get too close.  This too shall pass, Bryon is really being patient but he definitely wants to get some
 of the hugging I am getting without Clara screaming bloody murder. :)
Jian has found his calling... he is an awesome big brother! He's even worked in a little time to play with the locals. 
Thank you al for all of the thoughts and prayers.  So far the process has gone smoothly.  Connie, our guide from BOIT, has been great and, Stefani, I did give her a big hug from you and told her about Lan' s surgery.  
To all the expectant adoptive parents out there... I hope everone's PA and TA's happen soon so you can experience this as well!
Bryon and I will keep updating!

How is it when the local children play with Jian and realize he does not speak Chinese?
