Oh, Penny!! She's so beautiful. God has truly blessed us. I don't know what else to say; it's all so overwhelming (can't even possibly imagine how overwhelming it must have been for you and Shan). I love you, Pen, and I thank God that he has given us such a beautiful gift!!

Pretty neat! Looks like she has a good pair of lungs. Nancy can't wait to hold her, play with her, love on her, and stuff.
Are you eating any weird food? Do the TV's have any English stations?

Oh, Penny! She is just precious! I have been very busy getting my Dad home, but I had to stop and check your site to see if you had received Norah. Seeing your pictures brings back so many memories of our gotcha day. I am so happy for you! I'll check back soon for more pictures, keep them coming (when you have time).

The restaurant across the street...has large wooden windows is good...NO English, however.
the cabbage & noodles were good and not so wierd as the rest of the menu. Try the bakery across the opposite street too...was cheap! Grocery store next to wooden window restaurant was a good place for cheap water.
