Whew! We have flights booked to China! We are leaving in 4 weeks! And we have Gotcha Day in one month on Sept 1st! That is the day we will receive Anna. Then we stay in China for about 2 weeks. There is lots of paperwork and things you have to take care of there. On Sept 10 we will have an appointment at the US Consulate in Guangzhou. Anna will have a swearing in ceremony to get her Visa to come to America! As soon as we land on US soil and clear immigration at the airport she becomes a US citizen. We will also complete the legal adoption in China. (When we adopted Rachel from Korea we had to complete the adoption in Summit County.) Anna will come home on a Chinese passport in her Chinese name YuanYuan.
We have passports, we have plane tickets, we are waiting for hotel reservations that our adoption agency makes and our travel visas to enter China. Now I'm off to go shopping because there is lots to get for the trip!
