Meeting Lilly, Guangzhou China, 11/20/06

Hi all:

On Monday, November 20 we flew from Beijing to Guangzhou on China Southern, China's biggest airline. But no, we did not go on the new Airbus 380 although the first one flew into Guangzhou's airport this week. BTW, Guangzhou's airport is the biggest in Asia.

In the afternoon at 3:30, we went to the Civil Affairs Office and picked up the babies!!

Here's the expectant couple waiting to meet their their new daughter for the first time. Pete is holding Lilly's adoption letter:

Mission accomplished! Now the adjustment period begins ...
