We are going to China!!!!

We are so excited to say that we are finally going to China!!!!! We have prayed for this for so long and it's time to meet Cai!! We will be leaving on Wednesday morning, May 26 ( Yes, 5 days!) and we will return home on Saturday, June 12. We will be meeting Cai for the very first time on Monday, May 31 and will officially adopt her on Tuesday, June 1. We will spend that entire week in her province, Wuhan , getting to know one another and seeing the province she is from. We will then fly to Guangzhou on Friday evening, June 4. In GZ, Cai will have her medical examinaton, we will do all of our paperwork and appointments with the Consulate, and Cai will get her visa to enter the USA. Please pray that all of this goes smoothly! We will try to post something every day with pictures on this blog. Cai, Ready or not, here we come!!!!!

Congratulations, Kim!! What marvelous news!!
I wanted to answer your questions about the cricket cage...we found ours at the gift shop at the White Swan. It's downstairs across from the shop that sells candy and snacks. Don't be afraid to go in, as it looks really pricey, it's not! We got our boys' cricket cage for about $5 US!! And I LOVE it!!
Happy Travels!!

Kim,
Wow...last time I checked your blog it was October 2009 pumpkin patch pictures! WOW what has transpired since then! Your Cate has always had a special place in my heart b/c she has a very similar SN as my Josiah...and God chose YOU to be her family! And now Cai too! So happy for you! You are on your way to China as I type! May the Lord continue to make your way smooth.
Blessings,
Holly from Purpose Driven Family
