  4. Have a wonderful and safe trip! We cannot wait to meet your beautiful daughter- a Guangxi princess to love! They are so special and I know Amanda will love having a "sister" nearby. Best wishes and enjoy every minute. Not one day will pass when you return home, that you don't think about China. xoxo
