Our arrival into Shanghai has been incredibly smooth. Thank you to everyone for your prayers as we transition into a new home, job, culture and country ... and into a new family! The only kink in our arrival has been experiencing first-hand the "firewall of China," which blocks blogger (& any blog for that matter), plus facebook and many news websites. We were able to get a tip from some of our co-workers and have purchased a VPN service which seems to be the only reliable way to utilize freedom-of-the-internet.
Anyhow, we're on-line at the moment and here are a few photos of our magnificent new home!!! we could hardly believe it when we arrived - it is lovely and we know that we are unbelievably blessed.
This is the exterior and then a couple shots of our room, sitting area, bathroom & balcony...more to follow!
