‘Twas the night before takeoff

February 1, 2007 at 7:38 am | Posted in Adoption Updates | 4 Comments

What a whirlwind this week has been.  Lots to do and I thought I had a lot of time to do it in but a week sure went by quickly.  Bags are pretty much packed, gifts have been purchased, airplane snacks and diversion materials are ready to go.  I’m not even going to write about leaving my precious Bean for a week because I will break down and cry.  So let’s just leave it at that.

 We’re leaving on Friday morning with an overnight layover in Tokyo.  An early departure Sunday morning (because we cross the international date line) will put us into Seoul around 1pm on Sunday.  We’re staying downtown near a shopping district so we hope to take in some sights before THE BIG DAY.

Monday morning we are to arrive at the agency.  Our assumption is (because we have not received any formal itinerary) we will meet with The Paperwork Lady (yes, I’m told that is her formal title) who will give us Yoon Seong’s travel paperwork.  Around 10:00am we should be meeting Yoon and his foster mother.  So while you all are watching the Bears kick some NFL ass we will be meeting our son.  We’ll also be meeting the founder of the agency and his son over lunch at the agency along with any other couples who also happen to be there. 

We think Tuesday and Wednesday will be on our own but we’ve been encouraged to ask for a second meeting with Yoon and his foster mother for Wednesday.  Hopefully they’ll be able to comply.  Our departure flight leaves in the early afternoon on Thursday so we won’t have much time to do much of anything except say a final good-bye to his foster mother and have the founder of the agency say a blessing for Yoon before we leave.

We’re hoping to post updates and pictures while we’re gone….so stay tuned….we’re in the home stretch.
