Slow Boat to China

6 06 2008

The boat has been slowly making its way to China…for three years! And finally, on June 24th, we depart. We fly from Madison to Beijing, via Chicago and San Francisco…We arrive in Beijing on the 25th. We will have a couple of days in Beijing to catch up on sleep (jet lag.. not that we’re saving up sleep until we arrive in a foreign country), explore Beijing, go on a couple of tours with other adoptive parents who are in Beijing.

And, hopefully, we will meet Kajsa on either the 29th or 30th! We’ll fly to her province on the 29th, I think.

So, that’s the plan for now. Our tickets are booked (Thank you Dan and Joan for the miles!)…and it feels a bit more real, now. A bit. I guess it’s actually felt a bit more real in the past week or so, but today, having an itinerary in hand feels even more of a bit real.

Hello Mu & Ba……I’m brushing up on my Chinese. That’s mother and father, which are words I hope you will be hearing very soon. May God’s peace rest upon you as you wait expectantly to hold your beautiful daughter. That is one fortunate little girl to have such special people that God picked out to be her parents! Blessings to all of you.
