14 days!!

Z with our count down numbers! ūüôā

2 weeks from right now we will be on our way to China!!  Woo-hoo!!  It is definitely starting to feel real.  We got our itinerary yesterday.  Here is what it looks like:

Wednesday, October 5-  Depart for Beijing, China, through Seoul, Korea

Thursday, October 6-  Arrive in Beijing, go to hotel

Friday, October 7- Tour Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, and see acrobatics show

Saturday, October 8- Tour Great Wall

Sunday, October 9- Depart Beijing for Zhengzhou, Henan, China

Monday, October 10- HANNAH MIN DAY!!!!!

Tuesday, October 11- Go to registration office to complete the adoption paperwork

Wednesday, October 12- Optional tours

Thursday, October 13- Free day/ optional tours

Friday, October 14- ¬†Receive Hannah’s passport. ¬†Depart Zhengzhou for Guangzhou, China

Saturday, October 15- Hannah’s physical and visa photo

Sunday, October 16-  Free day

Monday, October 17- The all important Consulate Appointment, where we will take an oath.

Tuesday, October 18- ¬†Receive Hannah’s Visa to go to the United States! ¬†Depart for Hong Kong.

Wednesday, October 19-  Depart for the U.S. through Seoul, Korea, and arrive home!!!!!!!!!!

During one of our free days, we may have the option of visiting the orphanage that she has been in for so long in LuoHe, or we might go to Puyang, to see her “finding spot”. ¬†We really won’t know those exact details until we are there. ¬†I think both experiences would be invaluable, but we will have to travel several hours to get to each place, and I don’t think we can do both. ¬†I think I will just have to evaluate the situation when we get there. ¬†I can’t believe it is really almost here!!

    Hi! I think we will be traveling together! We are with CCAI and our daughter is 22 months from Henan province. We will be bringing along our 3 year old (almost 4) daughter who was adopted in 2008, my mother, and my stepfather. Our blog is:

    Wow, that would be a tough choice – the orphanage or the finding spot. You might want to see the orphanage and thank people. Then, again, it might be hard to locate the finding spot on your own, if you tried later. (We will try to find Sophie’s someday. ) Good luck. It will be great, and we love you guys!
