China here we come!!!!!

What to pack, what to pack, what to pack!!!
We have been busy trying to get everything in our suit cases but keep it under 40#! We are allowed only one suitcase a person at no more the 40# and a carry on. Everybody knows how hard air travel is now a days! We leave in 2 weeks from now! Our first stop will be Japan as Rick's mom has always wanted to go there and we had a lay over anyway. So we will leave a couple of days early and go shopping and tour Japan. Then we will leave for Beijing China a day early as we found out we were only there for 1 day and we had so much we wanted to see. On the second day our travel group with Great Wall Adoption Agency will join us. There are 5 of us adopting from the Chuzhou orphanage. There is 1 boy and 4 girls being adopted I think. We will leave for Hefei on Oct 29. We will then get to see Alana for the first time on the 30 of Oct. A day I am sure we will remember forever! We have waited so long for this moment! Keep us in your prayers. We hope the transition is an easy one for Alana. We will then leave for Guangzhou and the Famous White Swan Hotel on Nov 3rd. We will go to the American Consulate to finish up paper work and Alana will see a doctor before she is allowed to fly home on the 8th. Thanks to all who have taken this journey with us! It truly is a journey of a life time and for us it is just beginning! One of our friends will be house setting and baby sitting our furry baby's for us until we get back. A BIG thanks to everybody who has joined us on our journey and has helped us with the process
