  1. Catherine don't forget to take some Gravol and some prunes for yourself. Most of the women in our group experienced sleep problems while in China and I experienced constipation.

    Good luck

  2. VERY cute backpack! My daughter would love it.

    We adopted her from South Africa in June 08, and she will be 2 in December.

    I have enjoyed reading about your adoption journey, and the most exciting part of it is yet to come!

  29. My niece would love this.

    Can't wait to journey with you to China.

  30. Am anxiously awaiting your trip to China to get Hannah. Our daughter has a special needs daughter from China who just celebrated her 4th birthday on Sunday. She had ribbons in her hair which read "Big Sister". I asked our daughter if it meant what I thought and she shook her head in the affirmative. They have started the paperwork for another special needs little girl from China and will be traveling in the next 12-24 months. They have 3 biological children and soon to be 2 adopted beauties from China. Our granddaughter would love to have the backpack for her trip to China to get her "baby sister".
    In Christian Love,
    Grandma to soon to be 5!

  48. I've been following your blog since the babies post on RQ. Little did I realize that I've "met" you before on the Salsa in China blog.

    We are adopting our third daughter from China sometime in the Spring, and I would love to be able to give this to her when we meet for the first time.

  49. Gracie sure could use a cute backpack like that :o) !!

    Murray and I want to chime in that those little packs of kleenex came in handy (I took about 20 packs). I personally never used a public toilet the entire time we were there - but I can't say the same for the rest of the family!

    I wish we'd taken travel mugs. A lot of mornings you're up and on the road quite early - it would be so nice to take a coffee along (we found the coffee at the hotel to be OK!)

    Also, if you're pondering the carrier/stroller debate (just the carrier or both) I'd forget the stroller. We bought an umbrella stroller when we got to China, but hardly used it.

    Glad you're finding time to update - so exciting!

    If things are moving too slowly for you while you wait, get started on Hannah's lifebook. We've been back 2 years and I still haven't started yet.

  57. Catherine congrats on your referral of Hannah!! Before you know it she will be in your arms. The blog is great! When you go to China make sure you take extra copies of your documents and some Immodium for diarrhea with extra Kleenex packets for the soft touch if ya know what I mean. Looking forward to reading about your gotcha family day.

  70. Catherine dont forget your bottle flask, the one like Adia has, it was the one of the best things we took with us. Our family doctor gave us a prescription for some tabs to take if we got an upset tummy I will try to remember the name and email it to you. Adia Rowan, and I are so excited for you.
