First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you that left such kind comments on my blog! I really appreciate it and it warms my heart to know that we are not traveling this journey alone! It makes me happy to know that Willa already has so many people cheering her on! Thanks guys, really!

Also, I wanted to ask for help. If anyone knows a great website or travel agent that would help us find great deals on airline tickets, I would appreciate it. Traveling in June/July is outrageous. I have never had to "shop around" for airline tickets before, so I don't really know where to look. I would love some suggestions. Thanks!

One last thing - a couple of you commented about the Disney item in Willa's care package. It was funny to me, because all of the things were bought for her in China. I told Angela what I was looking for, in this case, an art set. It was sheer coincidence (except I don't believe in coincidences) that she chose something Disney related. I smiled when I saw that too! I can NOT wait to take Willa to Disney for the first time. I get giddy thinking about it! Don't think for a second Hong Kong Disney hasn't crossed my mind. Or Tokyo Disney for that matter. LOL! Wouldn't that be awesome? It will never happen, but it is fun to dream! Anyway, it was great that she got a little Mickey in her care package!

My son knew Mickey Mouse long before he ever came home to America. They have Mickey, Barbie, Santa, and a few others that you would be surprised by. You are right about airfares at this time of year. Try this site-my online friends from Ohio used it very recently to get good deals for the five of them to travel:
and best of luck with everything!

Michele, here's the link for a friend of mine. I used her for my cruise and I want to say Janna has worked with her too. I'm sure Greta would be thrilled to help!

Hi-we are an AWAA family who came home with our then 4 year old daughter in November of 2008. Congratulations on your beautiful daughter and we look forward to following your journey. We checked out both Sunshine Travel and Delight Travel and I think we ended up using Delight because their prices were slightly less at the time. You should be able to find them both if you google them, I can't remember the exact websites. Good luck

I was going to recommend Greta, too!

That is too funny about the care package! I really did think that you bought everything over here.

Yeah, there are NO coincidences...
