Change and Plans

Yes, I have been a bit grumbly about our delayed travel. But there has been a change! Yesterday we received via email, our definite plans/itinerary. Here they are.

Depart for China: January 1st
Arrive in Beijing: January 2nd
Tour Beijing: January 3rd
Fly to Nanning: January 4th
Gotcha Day: January 5th!!!
Finalize Adoption in Province: January 6th
Fly to Guangzhou: January 10th or January 11th
Consulate Appointment: January 13th at 9:30am
Take oath and receive visa: the afternoon of January 14th
Fly back to the US: January 15th

Yes, I knew all that before, but this time I read it, it was a bit different. Did you notice the fifth line? It says gotcha day......January 5th!!! Holy cow! We have our referral and now we have gotcha day!! So my bad attitude has changed (it took 2 days R, instead of 1 day)!!!
One month and counting.
Here's hoping that the next batch of referrals arrives soon, like Monday!

Isnt it a wonderful feeling to finally see your itinerary! Just think 1 month from today you will have Flora in your arms for the rest of your life!

Wait a minute. Today is the SIXTH. That means you are less than a month away from holding Flora!!!

2 days is okay....as long as the grumpiness has left the building!

You have some major magic headed your way! Enjoy the ride. It really doesn't get much better than this.

Love,
R :)
