One our way home

Well, today was our last full day in China. The big news from the day is that we went to the American Consulate in Guangzhou where we and about 50 other American families took an oath and received Visa's for our adopted kids. We also received the "brown envelope" that will be needed to get Andy through immigration tomorrow in San Fransisco. Other than that, we spent our time walking around the island in the rain finishing some last minute shopping. We had lunch at Lucy's again, where we were able to get some Western food. For dinner we went to a very nice restaurant that seemed to specialize in Italian and French food, but also had Chinese. We thought we would splurge a little for our last night in China, it was very good. Now we are just getting ready for the long day tomorrow which will start with a wake up call at 4:30 am local time and 24 hours later we will be least back in the state. It has been a wonderful trip and I can't wait to come back with the rest of the family!! I also can't wait for the rest of the family to meet little Andy, as you will see he has a VERY outgoing personality!! But everyone seems to instantly love him, I know I did. Well, I guess it's time to finish packing.

It must be great to know that you will be reunited with your family soon. As excited as we are to be traveling soon to get our daughter, we know leaving our 3 kids here for over two weeks will be hard. We wish you the best and pray for a safe journey home for eveyone COMING HOME!
