Our original plan was to then spend a few days visiting our dear friend and adoption guide, Lineker, at his home in Fuzhou, China but we had to cancel due to Mia's relapse just prior to departing for China. Without the entire family in tow, we will have to leave that for the next trip! :-)
Thursday, May 17 - Gotcha Day #2 -- Beth, Grammy Wolford & Mia (and any other friends and family who want to come) meet Jonathan at Dulles airport! FLIGHT CANCELLED!!! They will now be arriving at the same time and place but a day later, on Friday, May 18. Same flight numbers and times below.
United Flight #898 Departs Beijing 6:30p; Arrives Dulles 7:46p This will be their first port of entry so they will need to go through customs before being greeted by us on the baggage claim level to the far right. Hope to see you there!
