Sat. June 13th
Well, we have our tickets, and are finally fully approved by both China and the U.S. to go!! Our itnerary is as follows (at this time)

Fri. 6/ 26 leave for LAX
Sat. 6/ 27 our flight leaves at 1:40 am
Sun. 6/28 land in Beijing 7:40 am, change planes
Sun. 6/28 land in Zhengzhou, Henan, 8:55am, go to hotel
Mon. 6/29 Gotcha!
Fri. 7/3 leave Zhengzhou, land Guangzhou
Thurs. 7/9 leave Guangzhou for LAX via Beijing
Thurs. 7/9 land LAX 6:00 pm

Looks like we have at least 6 other families in our travel "group". Our agency, CCAI, tries to have families travel in groups to get their children that are being adopted from the same Province (Henan). We will all stay at the same hotel in Zhengzhou, get our children at the same time and then travel together to Guangzhou to finish the paperwork before going home. These families children come from all over Henan, different cities, different orphanages, all but one child, who I believe is coming from Kelly's CWI.
I'll post more later, but this is the latest.
