We tried calling the Consulate, but really had no luck. After MUCH deliberation, I think we will be leaving on October 5. Thank you to everyone who sent me messages with different opinions and viewpoints. I took them all very seriously. So sad that we have to wait another few weeks, but I am trying to focus on the fact that this time next month, I will be writing my blog from China.
In the meantime, I am going to do my best to focus on my precious ones at home. We had a wonderful meeting at Z’s new school tonight, and got to see his self portrait and read his autobiography. Definitely gave us some needed smiles. 🙂
