Hang on Kacey Mommy is coming! Great Wall received our travel approvals on Monday and has asked for consulate appointments in Guangzhou for the week of September 25th, this is the last step in the adoption process and very important. They are estimating that we will be wheels up and off to China on or about September 13th, Nana and I are going one day before the group so that I can get some work done in Beijing. Now it looks like much of our travel group is going to go early too so Nana will have lots of friends to hang out with and see the sights.
The big question is when does Kacey officially join our family? If this schedule holds true I will receive her either Sunday, September 17th or Monday, September 18th this depends on her CWI proceedures. Most probably it will not be until Monday but still it's SOON, she will be a beautiful 23 months old on "gotcha day"!
I'll post our confirmed travel agenda as soon as I get it, next stop Beijing!

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I have been checking your blog since we got our TA. Looks like we will be in Anhui at the same time. Do you know where you will be staying. We will be in Hefei and they told us that we would meet our children on Monday the 18. We so want to meet you and Kacey in person.
Oh I can't wait to get going. :)
