Let's Go: China

For the benefit of those who don't already know us, we are about to travel to China to adopt our first child, a little girl named Yu-Da ( 雨大 [Literally "rain big". We're not sure if this is intended to have any particular meaning--it doesn't seem to be any sort of idiomatic expression]). She is about 13 months old.

Along with Julie and myself, we'll be traveling with the Honored Grandparents: Julie's mother Peggy, my mother Judy, and father Bill. We'll be in China for three weeks, starting 8 Feb. We'll be in Beijing for the week of Chinese New Year, which should be pretty interesting. Then on the 16th we fly to the Guangdong province to get Yu-Da from her orphanage. Then we spend another week or so completing all the paperwork to make Yu-Da a U.S. citizen and complete the adoption. Then we come home.

And then who knows? It will be an adventure....
