We are set.
Heading out on the 22nd, to arrive in Hong Kong on the 23rd and Guangzhou on the 24th.
Don’t have all the details from our agency yet, but who needs details when you have purchased your plane tickets to China?
I am so. ridiculously. excited.
And for those of y’all who have inquired as to who will be traveling with me this time…
My oldest boy.
He’s pretty jazzed to be coming along on this trip.
That is, as jazzed as any 16 year old is about anything.
I really, really think he’s going to love China.
Especially meeting his littlest sister.
Eeeek. I have really got to get packing!
Ashley Milford says
I am so excited for you!!! Yay!! Have fun! Do lots of posts so I can live vicariously through you!
I’ll be praying!
Kirstie Bikakis says

Are you packing extra barf bags this trip? 🙂 Hope he travels better than his brother did!
Oh my goodness! I am just so very excited for you!
I could not be more excited for you and your family!!
Already praying about you being there…my thoughts are with you and my prayers are about what you are feeling, packing to bring 1 baby girl home. Love you, Stefanie.
If he has motion sickness you can get seabands for him at the drugstore. They are acupressure bands for his wrists. They work well…..
How neat for him to get to tag along. He can carry all the heavy stuff for his wonderful mom!
Super excited for you to be headed to get your little blessing! I see lots of lovin coming her way!
Yay! Can’t wait to follow your journey!

We’ll be nearly crossing paths. I head from Shenyang, China back to the US on the 19th. I’ll bet I’m nearly as excited as you are… I haven’t seen my family in 9 months! Hope your flight is great. Although I guess you’ve done it almost as many times as I have at this point. Don’t forget to pack the melatonin. That stuff is great for jetlag. 😉
