Now we just need to pack
Wednesday, November 21, 2007
Our visas have arrived and the only thing we need to do is pack. Actually there are a few minor things we need to get done, but overall we're about set. One of the other families that traveled with us on trip #1 also got a court date on the same day and will be with us again. Which is awesome because we really enjoyed their company on trip #1.

Anyway, they did a really cool thing on trip #1 that I wanted to share (this is actually their second adoption from Russia so we chalk it up to both their brilliance and their experience). They brought some clothes with them that first trip and it really helped to see what size their boy wore. The added benefit was all their pictures from the first trip had their little cutie in cool looking clothes.

So for those of you heading out on the first trip, I highly recommend doing this.

    That is a good idea if you are given info ahead of time. Unfortunately for those of us traveling completely blind, I would have to take an entire range of clothing sizes to fit up to a 2 year old.
