In November 2004 we started the journey to bring a baby home from China ... five years later, in October 2009, we met Isobel Pingqin.
Our little livewire known as Izzy.

Three weeks to go

We’re now getting very organised.

We still don’t have our “Notice to Travel” from China. If we don’t have the letter, we don’t get Izzy. We are hoping it is already in the mail as China will be starting a week of public holidays mid next week.

Bags are out and packed one day, unpacked the next – deciding just what we need to take for three weeks and one small girl is quite challenging. No doubt the bags will be packed and unpacked numerous times until we leave. If the weather was consistently either hot or cold it would be easier, but it is very much like Sydney at the moment, 18 degrees one day, 28 the next.

Accommodation in Hong Kong was booked and confirmed this week.

Prams came down from the rafters in the shed on the weekend, were washed and are now back in their old spot – in the boot of the car.

So the next two weeks will basically be getting Izzy’s room organised at home, and finding places for all the junk that has lived in her room and is currently in our hall.
