We're eagerly anticipating getting our travel approval. Jenn has been going through Lincoln's old clothes and filling Henry's drawers. She's also been going over packing lists from our agency as well as from other families who have made the trip recently. We've got our gifts to give to the various officials along the way (BeautiControl products and Malley's Chocolates). We're working on packing extremely light as the suitcase regulations are tighter in China for in-country flights than they are in the States and on the international flights... I think when it's all said and done, we'll have packed less for this trip than for our cruise.
Speaking of our cruise, I exchanged a couple of notes with Pete Casey today. You'll recall that we shared all of our dinners on our cruise with Pete & Mo. He told me that they're ready for another cruise. So are we, but it'll be a few years before we go on one again!.
Getting back to Henry, we know the time will be coming soon when we go to bring him home. Until then, we're praying for him multiple times a day.
