Tickets are purchased!!

Yes, we are indeed a traveling to China.  We have our consulate appointment, we have our tickets and we're ready to go!  We'll be traveling from 5/1 thru 5/18.  We're doing our trip in reverse this time, ending in Beijing instead of starting there.  We're there a little longer than we expected because the connecting flights between Beijing and the province of Anhui.

Please keep our fundraising in your prayers, because of these extra days, costs are going up that mush more.  If you could spare a Starbucks or two, we've raised thousands on small donations just like that  (over $3000 that way).  Times are tough I know and prayers are just as valuable as money.  Please add us to your church or prayer groups lists, the more prayers the better!

Are you going to be staying in Hefei in Anhui Province? Possibly the Holiday Inn? If so, that is where we were with Kara--spent many extra days there because of our changed referral. There are many neat parks around there and even an amusement park. We sure enjoyed getting out and walking around the area. I can't wait to see you with your lovely girl.

Heather- I just received your comment to my blog and checked out little Jonas- what a cutie. Our Jack also has CP- we just learned 2 months ago- it's been quite a ride. Email me if you can- I would love to be in touch with this family if you know them. Angela
