Over the past couple of days I have been researching the province where Madison comes from & have learned a lot. This province is known for it's porcelain, which will be adding to our list of things to buy. The climate is sub-tropical so even in late October/early November it should be pretty warm still. Jiangxi is also one of the poorer provinces in southern China as many of the larger cities in the south attract workers away for better paying jobs.
Above is a map of Jiangxi, currently Madison is in Leping (which is to the east of the large lake). When we travel to the province we will likely go to Nanchang to get her as this is where the Civil Affairs Office is located.

P.S. Our acceptance went off on Friday (along w/the 4 other families in our agency's travel group aka 'Group 92') via DHL to China. Now we wait for the Travel Approval (which will come in about 4 weeks).
