The picture is from our local FCC Autumn Moon Festival. We had a great time celebrating at the beach. What better place to watch the moon rise than over the ocean.
Our updated fingerprints and I-171h were sent to GZ on 4/28. We are so lucky to be using the USCIS office in Miami. The officer that processes adoptions is so nice. She personally called me to let know what day our paperwork was sent to the NVC (National Visa Center) in NH, and the day it was processed and sent to China. Thanks A.L.!!!
Now, if China would issue our TA. The swine flu outbreak has the world up in arms. While I feel really bad for anyone who has the flu, I hate being the position that this could delay our travel plans. Another bump in the road. We'll just have to wait until next week to see what transpires.
I thought I would post a few links about the Henan region and Anyang. One interesting fact I found was about a city in Henan called Kaifeng. Kaifeng had a small jewish community that no longer exists. However some of their customs are still present today like not eating pork. Take a look at the last link to learn more.
