Yesterday, Sept 25th was our Consulate appointment. The last thing we are required as adoptive
parents to do before leaving China.The room is filled with other adoptive families. We are asked to stand and raise our right hand, promising to never abandon these children. To provide for and educate them to the best of our ability. When we came in 2007 to adopt Kati we were told in advance
what a huge deal this was. Once again we were SO excited for this day to be here! A very special day to also spend my birthday! Birthday I will always remember!!
We are packed and waiting in our hotel room for all of Colin's official paper work from Consulate.
We leave this afternoon by van heading to Hong Kong. We will spend the night in Hong Kong and leave tomorrow at 11:00 am, one stop in Chicago and then onto Nashville, TN on Untied flight #5911 @ 5:54pm, Thursday, Sept 27th. Which is also Miss Kati's 6th birthday!!! We will be staying in Nashville until Monday, Oct 2nd. Colin will be seen in Nashville @ Vanderbilt Children's hosp.
Monday, Oct 1st by International specialist that viewed his referral.
We can't wait to get home and settled into our routine!! Kati is ready to get back to school and
Please pray for safe travels home and that the littles SLEEP!!
