We had our travel meeting yesterday, and I was very grumpy about driving 2 hours away, and taking a vacation day to do it. However, none of that affected my delight, when I heard that we have a tentative itinerary in place. We should get official TA next week, but our agency is very confident that these are our dates. If it is changed, it would be by 1 or 2 days difference.So far, the plan is:
March 10th - Leave for China
March 13th - Gotcha Day
March 21st - US Consulate appointment
March 22nd - Head back home.
Destination: Shanghai, then HeFei, then Guangzhou, then the route back is through Hong Kong.
Looks like we will be leaving exactly 3 weeks now, and we'll be holding Cady only a few days later.
It’s been a long…long ride. We started this journey November 28th, 2004. It will have been nearly 16 months from start to finish, without much time to sit back and breathe through any of it. But we are very much ready for her arrival. The only pictures we have of her, will be six to seven months old when we finally see her. She was 11 months old when the pictures of her were taken (only 4 or 5 months old when the smaller one was taken below. She will be 16 and a half months old when we finally get to hold her. I hope we recognize her. She will be the one with the pensive look in her eye, I’m thinking.
