In November 2004 we started the journey to bring a baby home from China ... five years later, in October 2009, we met Isobel Pingqin.
Our little livewire known as Izzy.

Shanghai - Day 13

We didn’t go on any of the organised sight seeing this morning, it was time to let Ben and Izzy have a rest.  We have been dragging them around every day, all day and night and they are both exhausted.  We just went and saw a few things at our own pace.

Tonight we went the World Financial Centre – it was the tallest building in the world until recently (I think the tallest is now in Dubai).  It is over 400m tall and I think 101 floors (can’t remember exactly).  It has a rectangle “hole” at the top and there is an observation deck with a glass floor.  The view of Shanghai at night was brilliant.  We then went on a cruise down the river in Shanghai.

This afternoon we also got Izzy’s passport back with her Australian Permanent Resident Visa.  We could have changed our flight to come home tonight – we are now basically free to bring her home.
