Karen reporting:
We started the day with the same breakfast buffet as yesterday. I leaned more toward the traditional French toast and bacon, but did have a side of steamed vegetables. As always, you can have rice with any and every meal.

We said goodbye to Sim and our bus driver when they left us at the airport. We had a noon flight from Beijing to Nanchang. We arrived in Nanchang at 2:00 p.m. where we were met by LiPing and Bruce. We found out that we will not be getting the babies until tomorrow, so one more night of good sleep! We are staying at the Lakeview Hotel. It is beautiful and has a fabulous dinner buffet (yes, there was sushi). We met Heidi and Rich today. They made their way here from Hong Kong. Our group will be complete when Lori arrives tomorrow.

We met with LiPing to complete some of the necessary paperwork. We will leave tomorrow morning (Monday) at 10:30 to get Kasen. This will be 8:30 p.m. on Easter Sunday at home. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers during this wonderful event. Yes, we will post pictures as soon as we can!

We all received some information about our babies that I thought you would enjoy reading.
