We've Arrived In China!
We had a great flight! It was very relaxing and seemed to go very fast. Jie Jie is feeling so much better, almost normal! She is a GREAT traveller!!!
We landed in Hong Kong at 6:10pm and went through Customs then made our connection to Guangzhou. It was effortless. My luggage system was great and the stroller is AWESOME! I am soooo glad I got it.
We are staying at hotel right at the Baiyun Airport called the Pullman. I saw it from from the air as we landed and wished I'd booked there. Come to find out, my guide did book there and I'm super thankful. I know my agency's checking my blog, so please relay that thanks to Chris and/or Michael for thinking of it!
Tomorrow morning, we are off to Nanchang, Jiangxi where Jie Jie was from and where I adopted her. We will then visit her SWI for the day, spend the night, and fly back to Guangzhou on Sunday. Monday is our Family Day, when I finally meet Sissy and she finally gets to have a family. She's been on my mind so much. You can't believe what she did. She emailed me to find out when I was coming then called the person in charge of taking the children to meet their parents. She emailed back saying I didn't have an appointment yet and to call this person to arrange it and even gave me the phone number! All I could think was, "This is DEFINITELY my daughter, charging full-speed ahead and checking that all the important arrangements have been made."
When we come back to Guangzhou, we'll be staying at the Garden. If any families want to get together, just comment on my blog or email me!
