Well hallelujah! We finally received our appointment with the consulate in China and now have our travel dates! We are leaving for China on Thursday, December 9th out of Chicago (at 1 a.m. - yikes)! After a couple stops in South Korea & Beijing, we will arrive in Nanchang, which is in Maya's province, at 2:05 p.m. on December 10th! We will be bringing Maya home on Xmas Eve (which is Madeline's Birthday - Happy 14th Birthday Madeline)! Thank you to everyone for your kind thoughts, prayers and well wishes!
