I'm not sure if you are with GWCA, but originally I was expecting a Monday gotcha day. We actually had a Sunday gotcha day, but didn't find that out until we were in China. So you might want to have a bag packed for pick up. It worked well for me, because my suitcase came just 20 minutes before we left to get the babies. Might be worth a try just in case.

This is the first time I have had the chance to look at your site and I am so sorry that I haven't before now. We are so excited for you and your parents. What a wonderful addition to the Whiteside family. The day you will be with Kacey is McKayla's sixth birthday! :) Congratulations! I will keep checking your site and praying that all goes well!
