Our China Trip


I bought our plane tickets today! We're leaving for China on August 29th! We'll spend four or five days in Beijing with a half dozen other adoptive couples before meeting the rest of our group in Guangzhou on September 2nd. Then we'll meet our sweet little baby girl on September 5!

We all arrive back home on September 17th.

Don't forget to check this blog often while we're in China for updates and pictures of the most exciting part of this journey!

I guess it's time to dust off the suitcases and start packing!

Can't wait to hear about it! It'll be interesting to learn about Gwendolyn Claire's journey and this new journey your family is taking as well.

Love the name by the way.

Thanks, Anna :)

Nope, I've not looked at the temps in China but I fully expect it to be sweltering hot! I'm buying the coolest, lightest, clothing I can find! How about you?

Wow - the referrals should come in next week, right? Oh man, you guys must be giddy!!!

We're DTC July, so we've got a ways to go and have to live vicariously through all you early birds for a while.

Take care, and best wishes for next week!

Hey I just noticed you guys live in San Jose. So do we. We'd love to meet for a drink or coffee sometime to compare notes on this crazy adoption journey. If you're up for it, just email me. The email address is on my blog profile.

Take care, and congratulations again on your referral!
