We have booked our international flights! We will leave for China on May 7th, our 14th wedding anniversary, and return on May 22! We used a travel agent recommended by our adoption agency, Sue Sorrels. She is out of Texas but specializes in China adoption travel and we are very pleased with our experience with her so far. Her website, for those needing it to book their own travel, is www.here2china.com/Sue .
We will leave from Charleston in the morning and head to Newark, NJ where we will catch our 13 hour 40 minute flight to Beijing! Of course, when we get there we will feel like it's 2AM but it will be 2PM Beijing time! Boy are we going to be tired!
Our return flight involves flying back to Beijing from Guangzhou on the morning of the 22nd. That afternoon we will leave Beijing to head back to Newark and home to Charleston from there. The total trip time will be 19 hours going and 25 hours 32 minutes coming home....YAY! That's going to be fun, I bet! Please pray for us!
21 Days left in the countdown!
