Preparing for Travel

These past few days have been a whirlwind of preparations in anticipation of going to get our sons!

We definitely leave Thursday morning for the very looooooong trip to Ch*na (which includes 4 airports).  As of today, 70% of us are packed and ready to go.  I won't mention who is included in the 30%.  ;-)

Tomorrow we should have our itinerary for in-country.  We have a good idea of what it will look like, and it should be another whirlwind since we will be receiving both boys in different cities the first week!  This will be crazy, but the bright side is that it will help keep our costs down in several different ways.

Ch*na blocks blogger, so this tends to make blogging a bit difficult while there. ;-)  There are a few alternatives, and one that I had planned to try seems to have given a few adoptive families trouble lately.  So we will be updating and journaling daily (maybe, hopefully, lol) through our new baby jellybeans website. 

You can read about our Journey to Jonathan and Josiah at  We hope you will follow along!

(And, yes, I am going public with my children's names.  Might as well be transparent here, all in the spirit of keepin' it real. ;-)

Hey Rebekah! Thanks for saying hello on the blog! Yes, I'd love to meet up in Guangzhou when you get there. Are you at WS? We decided to stay there as V rates were higher (hard to believe, I know!). Anyway, I'll try and peek in as I can on you and then when you get to G, email me at so we can say hello in person! :)
