Travel Dates- WooHoo

OK Everyone- Here is a rough itinerary for our trip. I am not sure what day we go to Guangzhou. But we will get home on the 8th of April. If anyone wants to meet Langley at the airport you are more than welcome to come. We will be flying into Baltimore around 8:50pm- but those details will follow.

March 22: Leave for China
March 23-28: Arrive in Beijing and sightsee
March 28: Fly to Chongqing and get Langley
March 29-April 5: Finalize Adoption, Sightsee, Shop, Fly to Guangzhou Sometime
April 6: Consulate Appointment in Guangzhou
April 8: Arrive Home

I am so excited I don’t know what to do. The house is a wreck- I have everything to pack in an area- but haven’t packed much of it yet. But those of you who know me know that I have inherited the master packer gene from the Whidden side and if I have to slide deodorant into shoes that already have travel toothpaste in them I can do it and everything will fit!
We hope my parents and sister arrive early enough (from Kentucky) to clean the house for us before we get back from China. Just Kidding .

I'm a friend of your counsin Angie in KY. I was talking to her just last night and she was telling me that you were waiting for TA. I am impatiently waiting for my referral. I was DTC on 8-30-05 and have a LID of 9-29-05. Congratulations on your new daughter and have a wonderful trip!

I hopr your referral comes soon- believe me I know how the waiting sucks! I can't believe we are leaving in a few days. It will happen- even if it feels like forever. Have you joined your DTC group on yahoo- or the APC yahoo group? They helped me through so much.
PS- Any questions of tips you need let me know- I can't promise I will know the answers but I will try!
