Getting ready for Korea!

Tim and I are running around getting last minute things and packing for when we leave on Saturday. It's so hard to know what to take in this kind of situation because we've never done this before...adoption or parenting in general :) I have done my best to collect all the wonderful advice from the adoption forums (lots of advice in there) and take from it what will work best for the season we are going in and the place we'll be staying at and the length of time we'll be going. Let's just say it's still anyone's guess as to what we will actually need and not need. The opinions are so different on packing light and then not packing enough. We only wanted to take carry ons but i think we are going to have to take a checked bag too. Oh well, hubby wants to get packing now so gotta go!!! Ciao :)

Two other couples are coming to Korea at the same time as us and getting their little cuties. So we are excited about that because we will get to hang out together and shop and eat and share in the joy of this awesome moment :) Yippee!!!


  1. Wow! I think you'll need at least one checked bag (and an extra one to check with goodies for the trip back). Take some essential stuff in your carry-on, just in case. ;) Good luck! So excited for you!

  2. We managed to squeeze everything into two cabin-sized roller bags and two backpacks :) Once we offload the gifts and start using the diapers and such, we will have extra room in our suitcases :)

  3. Hi!
    Have a wonderful time in Seoul with your baby boy!!! I'm so super excited for you!

    Best wishes for a safe and fun trip!
