Well we made it! All flights were on time and we even got into Beijing a few minutes early! All suitcases made it too. The flights were uneventful and actually not so bad. We are in the Poly Plaza Hotel in Beijing and will be here until the 27th. We stayed here last time too but only for a night. We are all exhausted and have a 6:30 wake up call in the morning. We leave at 8:00 to get Xin!!!!! We actually get to go to the orphanage. Our guide has seen Xin several times and says he is doing very well and is very active- we will soon find out what that means!!! So long for now from the Hatcher 5! See ya tomorrow as a family of 6!!!!!!
