Change in plans.......

DCB --- DCB --- DCB --- DCB

(DCB -- deep cleansing breaths)

That's what I have been doing for the past 2 hours. DCB. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. And Repeat.

Our flight home from China has been cancelled. Really -- no joke. I wouldn't joke about something like that. And we will no longer be leaving China on the 13th. We will be leaving on Friday the 15th of May instead. Why not come home on Thursday instead of Friday? There are no flights home on our airlines on Thursdays. Big smile. Another slug of my margarita -- ok it's really limeaide -- but I'm pretending -- another DCB too.

On the bright side, the weather is wonderful in Guangzhou in May, I'll have my daughter the whole two extra days we are there, and I have lots more time to shop. DCB.....DCB.....DCB.

Here's the new and improved plan -- see how positive I am.

05.01.09 / Friday -- Fly to LA, then from LA to Guangzhou
05.03.09 / Sunday (China time) -- Fly from Guangzhou to Kunming
05.04.09 / Monday -- Gotcha Day, aka - the day we get Cassie!!!!
05.09.09 / Saturday -- Fly to Guangzhou in the morning
05.12.09 / Tuesday -- American Consulate appointment
05.13.09 / Wednesday -- Pick up Cassie's passport
05.15.09 / Friday -- Fly home
05.16.09 / Saturday -- Arrive home as a family

Oh, sweetie. If you have to be stuck in China, Guangzhou is the place to be. You can just walk the parks, have a Starbucks, get a massage (cheap!), shop, swim, etc. Just keep remembering that you will be with your angel! :)

Poor Sonny...just think of the 2 more days of shopping you can get in :) Not to mention 2 more days as a family of 3 to just leisurely relax and hang out together.

It will be just fine...

I think two extra days of bonding before that long trip home will be great. While in China, you get to focus exclusively on your girl. Well, her and the shopping, of course.

Thanks every one -- I know there is a reason why we need to stay another 2 days -- we just don't know what it is yet.

Being together was a FAMILY is all that matters.

We leave in exactly three weeks!!!

Your daughter is just beautiful! I wanted to pop over here and see her when I saw your post on the travel group I started. We will see you in China with your sweet girl!
