Travel book

I must have a lot of time on my hands today.

As I was emailing a family about to travel about what to pack, where to husband had the brilliant idea..

Write a book.

I mean, not a real book.

But put together a book for families about to travel to Henan, full of tips, what to pack, what not to pack, EVERYTHING.

And while I've done this trip 3 times, I haven't done or experienced it all.

But I figure with your help-- I could encapsulate pretty much everything.

That way, when a family is about to travel, I can just email them this book with all our wealth of information.

So if' you'd like to help, I need any advice, tips, etc. that you have-- related to but not restricted to the following:

Travel Agents


What to Pack (for various ages-- say 12-24 months, 3-5 years, 6+)

What NOT to pack

Where to eat

Where NOT to eat

Gift ideas

Airline info


Email me.  When you do-- make sure it's typed nicely and feel free to include pictures.

I'd like to get this done before the end of March. So hop to it!


  1. We have just completed our home study and are working with CCAI on our adoption. I am so thankful for your blog. This is our first experience with an international adoption and it is scary at times. Your blog and links to others families has been such a blessing. Thank you for all you do!!

  2. Hi Emily! I am making this trip without my hubby this time because we can't leave our little without both of us for two weeks. Any advice on traveling without your spouse? I do have a travel mate to help. How was filling out all the paperwork ect. and bonding? Can my travel mate fill out and then I just come in and sign it? What is the process like when coming home to gain citizenship and how long does it take? Just wondering..
