Leaving Guangzhou

Hi Everyone!

Our new son is a joy!! Our trip has been wonderful. But it is winding down..hooray!! We check out of our hotel on Shamian Island in Guangzhou this afternoon. We head to the U.S. Consulate to take our oath and receive Sam's visa.

After receiving the visa, we had directly to the train station for a two-hour train ride to Hong Kong. We will spend the night in HK and fly out in the morning. We should arrive in GSO on Wednesday at 7:25pm (EST)

We are praising God for an amazing safe trip to adopt our son. We can't wait for you all to meet him! Please pray for safe travels and a calm boy on the airplane home. See you soon!! xoxo

Up, Up, and Away........

We got our TA (Travel Approval) from China on June 26th!! Woo Hoo!!

We are leaving (today), June 12th for China! Our first stop is Beijing, then on Sunday we'll be on to Nanjing, Jiangsu. Then we head to Guangzhou to complete our adoption of Sammy!! While in Guangzhou, we will be staying at the Victory hotel. Guangzhou is the city where Americans converge at the U.S. Consulate to make their adoptions final. We're excited to get to go there and meet up with all our "friends" from around the country!

We'll try our best to keep this blog updated! If you want access to all of our photo albums, please send us a quick email and we'll add you to our list!

Love, K & J
