I’m writing about packing for a China adoption trip over at The Adoptive Parent Toolkit. This post could apply to any adoption trip though. Well, maybe not Ghana, since the shopping there wasn’t quite as readily available. We learned that one the hard way.
I’m a carry on only kind of packer. Joe is not, but since I packed FOR him when he went to get Bowen, that’s the route he went then. You can read about how I packed for Cate’s adoption trip here. When we go to get Gigi, we’ll be going minimalist again. This time, we won’t need to go back to Beijing to have our new kiddo checked out medically and cleared to fly. So, we’ll be traveling into Shanghai, on to Nanjing (via train) and then down to Guangzhou (via an in-country flight). To get home, we’ll fly out of Hong Kong. If any of you reading this have made that journey, or one similar, I would LOVE to hear your tips!
Tell me all about it!
