Day 7: Dec 18, Julia's 6th Birthday updated with Li River Cruise pictures

I wish I could share pictures today, but the connection just isn't cooperating. Sorry. (Updated with cruise pictures) We started the day with the Li River Cruise, a 5 hour boat trip to see the beautiful mountains surrounding Guilin. Then we finished off with Julia's 6th birthday dinner that we were able to share with her Chinese foster family. It was a very special privilege to meet them. She joined their family when she was only 8 months old, and was with them over 5 years. We are both so very happy to see how much she was loved and cared for. Her foster mom also explained to us what she has done over the years to help Julia compensate for her special needs. Today was a very special day indeed.
