We have our Plane Tickets & Itinerary

We just received our tickets today from Sue Sorrels. Thank you so much Sue for all your help. It is so real to me know that I can't stop smiling. What a crazy journey this has been for me. Thank God it is almost over.

Here's what will be happening when we arrive in China. We leave on 2/2/07. We arrive in Beijing China on 2/3/07 @ 3pm. Our guide will meet us and take us right to our hotel. Then on 2/4/07 we will see the Great Wall of China. At first it said that we would be seeing it by cable car. NOT!!!!! I don't do heights. So that had to change. Then we are going to the brand new Harley Davidson store that just opened in Beijing. So looking forward to that. Then we will see the Acrobatic Show that night. On 2/5/07 I was hoping to get Lily Rose but noooo, they have us down for a full day of sightseeing. Tian An Men & the Forbidden City, Hu Tong Tour (?) and lunch at local resident's house. Well, I tried my hardest to change this whole day and I told them I just wanted to get up and fly out to Changsha to meet my daughter. They told me "we had to" do these tours. I am so not happy about it. A wasted day in my eyes. HELLOOOO PEOPLE, I JUST WANT MY DAUGHTER!!!!!

Anyway, we leave Beijing that day at 5pm and get to Changsha at 7:20pm we will go to the hotel and do who knows what. FEBRUARY 6th, 2007 is OUR GOTCHA DAY. We will go to the Civil Affairs (I don't know what time yet) to meet our Lily Rose. This day will be for me the same as the day Joseph was born. UNFORGETTABLE

We leave Changsha on 2/12/07 at 11:20am for Guangzhou. 2/13/07 is her Medical. 2/14/07 is CA date. 2/15/07 we get her Visa and 2/16/07 we FLY HOME.

So that is our trip in a nut shell. Write more soon.

We are so excited for you. I cannot believe Gotcha Day is the same as Joseph's birthday. How excited is he? Send me an e-mail with your phone number. Can't wait to chat.
