One More Day

Such drama. Our travel approval letter was stuck in Guangzhou over the weekend with all the weather troubles, so it did not arrive Monday afternoon. After much freaking out, I discovered where it was and phone numbers of people handling it. After much sweet talking through intermediaries, I managed to get the EVA courier people to allow me to come straight to their handling facility at 7 a.m. to retrieve the package.

Letter in hand, I jumped on a plane to Hong Kong and then another to Chongqing. And I am here! Chris and I just spent 30 minutes packing our stuff for the trip to Fuling tomorrow. It is a 2 hour car ride, and I swear we are taking enough stuff to enable a baby to survive a nuclear holocaust.

So, a little baby will be here tomorrow. Whooooooo!

How thrilling! With Chris' map fetish he should have gotten something put together like the Norad thing they do for Santa. Really!

I found your blog a few weeks ago (I think from the Gesweinfamily blog) and I've been following your story.

I see that in China it's now 5pm on Wednesday, so I hope you are holding your lovely new baby and getting to know each other.

Best Wishes
