We will visit Shanghai and surroundings until Sunday, May 6.
We are taking the train (high speed, though not super high speed) from Shanghai to Wuhan sometime Sunday afternoon.
May 7, in Wuhan, is our Gotcha Day!  Li Lin will be place in our care.  smiles... tears... more smiles... more tears...
May 8 is the formal adoption day and paperwork day.
We will visit Wuhan and surroundings May 9 and 10.
