In two and a half hours we make our last stop at the US Consulate and pick up Merrilee's visa and the paperwork to give to Customs that makes her a US citizen.
This has been an incredible trip. Because of China's new rules we will not be able to adopt again (Mark will be too old.)
We know there are thousands of US families still waiting for matches and we hope all of their dreams come true too.
We're done shopping. After the Consulate it's a quick dinner and then packing. Our bags get picked up at 5am and we head to the airport at 5:50am. It's almost 5 hours to Tokyo...almost 12 hours from Tokyo to Detroit and about an hour and 45 minutes from Detroit to BWI.
Merrilee is looking forward to meeting all of you...and of course, Bogart and Bacall.
And we are ALL looking forward to being back home.
