Made it to Portland!!

We are in Portland right now waiting for our flight to Tokyo. So far so good. We stayed up all night last night and only slept about an hour on the flight to Portland. Our flight leaves Portland at 2:30. I will take some Tylenol PM on the plane and hopefully I can sleep at least a few hours! I will try and post again when we arrive in Guangzhou on Friday night!!

Hi Amy, I just joined the yahoo group today for Shaanxi. Lexi is beautiful. Congratulations. We just received our PA for our daughter in Xi'an also. I was wondering if Lexi is at the Childrens Welfare Institute. If she is and you happen to go to the orphanage, we would love if you could possibly get pictures of our daughter. Her name is An GaoLing. Her picture is posted at our blog site ( I know this is probably a really strange question from a complete stranger, but you never know unless you try. My personal email is if your able to email me back that would be great. Best of luck with your trip. Only a few more days till you have your beautiful daughter in your arms forever!!!
