Starla,
We were technically in the same adoption travel group almost 3 years ago with Harrah's -- although we wound up never actually meeting. We wound up adopting a little boy from Hangzhou on that trip, who is turning 7 next week.
Our eldest daughter, now 10, is from Shenzhen SWI and was there for 5.5 years. Sophie (Bao Guo Qing) was in the "big girls room" so she and your daughter may have known one another.
I just wanted to say hello and wish you a safe journey. And if you wouldn't mind sharing any photos of the SWI with me -- anything at all -- that would be great. We plan on taking the kids back in a year, but a year is a long time....
Best wishes,
Ann Brenoff Johnson
