We arrived right on schedule this afternoon at 4:31pm in Beijing
We are thankful that the flight is over. It was very easy getting through customs and immigration and we walked through the thermal scanners without a problem.
The ride to the hotel was quite fascinating! 6 lanes of traffic without really having any lanes! And it appears that red lights are optional!!!
Tomorrow morning we meet with our guide at 9:00am to visit the Great Wall! We are hoping to tour with the other WACAP family that is staying in the same hotel. They are a deaf family that is adopting their daughter who is also deaf. I guess I will be brushing up on my skills tonight!
We are unable to view our blog, so we hope that it all turns out ok. We do not have any pictures yet to post.
I forgot to mention that when we were able to get out of our seats on the plane and stand for about 30 minutes we were able to view Siberia! It was breathtaking!
Sydney and Jadon, we love you and miss you! Mommy and Daddy are safe!! Do a great job in school today and Jadon, good luck at your soccer tournament! Put the moves on them!!!
When we got on the plane this morning, Kurt surprised me with a 10 year anniversary card. Our anniversary was Dec. 4.th. When we were first married, we dreamed of going to Alaska for our 10 Year Anniversary. Before we decided to adopt, we decided to go to Charleston and just do something small. But when we began the adoption process we joked that we would be going to China instead!!!! (And be having another baby!!!) He then surprised me with a necklace that I had been looking at for a year! I had wanted it so that I could wear it on Gotcha Day for Jackson! It has his photo on it! I was stunned!!!! Kurt is going to take a picture and try to post it! I must apologize for the way I look!!! We just got in from the airport and wanted to see if we could blog!!!!
Thank you for your prayers!! We have felt God's blessing and covering on us throughout the trip.
We are going to head down to the lobby and take a few pictures and see what is here.
