Botanical Garden and Packing

Today we went to a beautiful botanical garden. I wish I could tell you the name of it but I was not paying attention. I will try to find out though. We have some beautiful pictures but the sun decided to come. Usually that is good but there was not much shade for taking pictures of people.

Our consulate appointment went well and we are official done with all of our paperwork. Evan will become a US citizen the moment he hits US soil. For him that will be in Chicago, just like it was for Lia. There were quite a few families at the consulate but not nearly as many as there was in 2007.

We are 90% packed and will finish tomorrow morning after breakfast. We don't leave Guangzhou until about 3:30 pm. We will take a bus over to Hong Kong and spend the night. Our flight leaves at 11:30 am on Friday and we will be flying for a long time! Our flight arrives in the states at 4:45pm. We are looking forward to seeing everyone especially our children. Can't wait to wrap our arms around them and just give them a ton of love. I'm not sure if we'll blog again before we arrive home or not but we wanted to thank you all again for leaving comments and for emailing us! I can't wait to go home and go back and read over everything again. Enjoy the pictures!



  1. Happy packing and have a safe trip home!

  2. Love the pics and hope you guys have a safe flight home.


  3. Wow! Can't believe you're packing to leave already! Have loved the pictures and following Evan's adoption! Safe travels and congrats again! I'll call when you've had some time to settle back in. God Bless!

  4. It looks like he has always been a part of the family in these pictures...I can see the attachment he has with Taylor, that is so sweet. We are praying for a safe trip home and a smooth transition for all. Love ya, Traci
