We're headed to China - Travel Dates!

It's been a wild week of prep & planning, but I am happy to say that we have travel dates.

  • We leave Sunday 12/5 and will spend a few days sightseeing in Hong Kong. We lose a day to the time change so in essence we will be there 12/7-12/11
  • 12/11 we will fly to Wuhan and meet Zeke on either 12/12 or 12/13 (still awaiting confirmation).
  • We will be there almost a week before heading to Guangzhou via the 'bullet train' 0n 12/17.
  • In Guangzhou we have medical appointment 12/18, Consulate appointment 12/21, Swearing In Ceremony (taking the oath of citizenship) 12/22 & received Zeke's visa 12/23.
  • We will fly out of Hong Kong 12/24 & gain a day back arriving on US soil the morning of 12/24.

We have a crew of 4 total in our 'travel group' (Matt, Maddy, Linda (Matt's mom) & I). It's a little sad this time not having other families w/us for the journey. We will hopefully meet up w/other families in Guangzhou.

WE're so happy for you, after all the waiting!! Happy Thanksgiving, I don't know if we'll make it that day as Lydia has to cook Thanksgiving for the jail and Todd has sprained his ankle. Tim's still waiting to see what the weather is going to be like. We may have to wait until later in the weekend.

Tanya, you will definitely bond with other families in Guangzhou. I know that sad feeling of no travel group as well. We met 6 awesome families when traveling for Sienna that we now consider our "travel group"
