China, here we come!


Our flights: click to zoom

Things are moving along pretty swiftly. Our Consulate Appointment has been confirmed for March 5th and we'll be leaving for Beijing in two weeks! As you can see from the map above, there will be quite a bit of traveling to do and a bunch of Frequent Flyer miles to collect. We haven't been given our full itinerary yet but we think we'll be meeting our little man on Monday, February 27th -- our Forever Family Day!!

While we're waiting for our in-China travel arrangements from our agency, my husband is revisiting our flight options, and I'm scanning over my To Do and Packing Lists. I think I'm almost ready!

I still cannot believe this is happening! Gotta go...

Yay!! I love the visual aid for the flights. I may have to borrow the image for our blog when we go.

I should have the package on its way to you on Saturday. Thank you so so much! :)

You'll be holding your baby boy SOON!!

I LOVE that map- so creative! Sounds pretty similar to how ours is shaping up except we'll fly out of the east. How exciting you can see your family too- very special.

Congratulations!! I will also be stalking your blog and reading about you trip and seeing picture of you with your DS in your arms. I will be taking *mostly* the same route in a few months. That map is AWESOME!!! Where did you get it??

Congratulations! Wish we could have gone together but maybe it will be slightly warmer when you are here! check the weather forecast and bring appropriate coats!

Thank you, everyone!

Carmel: I found the map on the web years ago but tweaked it myself on a design program called Illustrator. You could probably do something similar in Photoshop. :)

Sue: I'm so excited about you meeting your little boy tomorrow... or tonight (US time)! Will be packing layers for sure!

I'm picturing you doing the "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" dance.

P.S. Nice map design nerd! <3
