Greetings From HONG KONG !!!

Hello everyone ! We are here, safe and sound despite Typhoon Megi. Oh yes ..we flew into a typhoon Friday evening ! As if flying 16 hrs isn't enough to wear you down ... and we all know how Jim loves to fly. We got in late Friday nite and got up early on Sat to tour Hong Kong for 8 hrs. It was so much fun and so busy. Talk about a city that never sleeps ! We got up today (Sun) and took a trip to see the BIG BUDDHA. It was a 40 min subway ride, then a 30 min sky lift ride , then a 30 - 40 min hike but wow it was  worth it ! The views were awesome. After seeing Buddha we stopped at a Buddhist Monastery and said a little prayer! We meet Lia tomorrow! So when you all wake up we will have our daughter. We will blog as often as we can to keep you up to date ! Love to all

The Countdown is on ....

We have our travel dates !
We will be leaving for HONG KONG and going to get Lia on 10/21/10.
We will fly to Chi-town then take a LONG 15 hr flight to Hong Kong. There we will spend the weekend "relaxing" (ya right) resting and site seeing. On Monday we will fly to YangChun China to get Lia. We will stay in her city for a few days then head to Guangzhou to make it official. In Guangzhou, we will do a lot of paperwork, doctors appointments, and meet with a number of Chinese officials AND even manage to do some site seeing for a while.
We will have Lia home for the holidays !! 
We are busy getting all the things done that need to be done for our trip. Lia's room is ready and we are anxious to get her home with us and get settled. 
So that's it for now !
Love to all      =)   Jim and Ally
