We made a promise at Isabel's adoption ceremony to one day bring her back to China. As she has gotten older I have been brainstorming as to how we were going to do that. We decided on a three week trip to Xi'an in Shaanxi province where we will volunteer at a special needs foster home. We will see what else is in store for us once we are there. Our flights have been booked since early November and our visas were obtained in short order. It is time to get packing!!! We leave in 2 1/2 weeks on March 3.....which is why I am holding my head as if I am wondering what the heck have I done now!!
