We have our travel itinerary

5 April 2006 Depart for China (Beijing)
6 April 2006 Arrive Beijing stay @ Kuntai Royal Hotel (3 nights)
9 April 2006 Depart Beijing to Guangzhou stay @ White Swan hotel (6 nights)
****This is the same day we will meet our baby****

10 April 2006 Civil affairs bureau to complete adoption registration
12 April 2006 Have visa picture taken and medical exam
14 April 2006 Have the group - oath taken at the U.S. consulate
15 April 2006 Guangzhou to Hong Kong - Hong Kong to Ohio

Now how is that going to be for effiency, we are going to be in and out in 10 days. We consider ourselves lucky to have gotten in this early, we weren't expecting to head for China until the third or forth week in April. We only got stuck with one night of the trade show rate at the White Swan hotel and it is costing us $300 for one night. Thanks again for the proactive folks at FTIA for getting us in there early, were all in a hurry to meet our babies. Todd>>>>

    You guys are going to have such a FANTASTIC TIME while in Guangzhou!! The white swan is AMAZING and Shamian Island is just beyond beautiful. Have a wonderful time & don't forget to take the time to stop & listen to the man who plays the flutes a few doors down from the 7-11 directly across from the Swan... he's AMAZING and so much fun to listen to! (I managed to get him on tape & Ruby LOVES litening to that portion of the video over and over!)

    Have a fun & safe trip guys, your life is about to change in ways that you could never imagine & your heart is about to swell a thousand times with love for your beautiful baby girl. Congratulations & have fun!
