Settling in @Wuhan

This morning we took the shuttle from our hotel to the Central Airport Express train station. We loved being able to walk a few steps from the shuttle drop off to an airline check-in station where we could drop off our checked bags & get our boarding passes. After a super fast train ride to the HK airport via the express train, we arrived in plenty of time for our flight to Wuhan. It was nice to see the impressive HK airport since we were too tired to really appreciate it when we arrived. They have charging stations & reclining chairs for weary travelers.

We arrived a few hours ago in Wuhan. There was a little bit of a scare when Linda was asked to step aside at immigration & have a seat while they took her passport for a look in a back room. After a few minutes they came back and let her go through. We have been getting settled into our rooms. It was quite a heart stopper to walk into our room & see the crib set-up all ready for Zeke. The hotel also put a little potty & baby bath tub in our bathroom. We are going to have a low key night & will go out to explore a little tomorrow. Our guide seems very nice & she gave us a little tour from the airport on the various local sites.

Our appointment to meet Zeke is 10 am Monday so we are down to just hours now. Our guide did inform us that his orphanage nannies have gone on & on about what a handsome & smart boy our son is and how much they will miss him. Also, it sounds like the custom in Hubei is to send the kids with a few things (snacks, formula & a photo album of his early months!) We can hardly wait for the big moment!

So fun to see you under the sign in Wuhan. The crib photo is precious! Soon there will be a little boy in it!

Continuing to pray for your journey, specifically meeting Zeke!
