Day 13: We are getting quite excited about returning home in a couple of days. However, first things first. Today began by meeting with our fellow WACAP families at the White Swan for the traditional "Red Couch" picture. Though one child was so upset by the idea that he didn't participate, the rest did fine. Afterwards we went shopping at a place known as the leather market and had lunch as well. Back we came to meet with the other families and take a bus to the U.S. consulate in Guangzhou. Here there was a brief swearing-in ceremony and we received Z's immigration visa documents. These will allow him to enter the U.S. and to gain citizenship status upon being admitted into the country. The documents were given to us in a sealed envelope, with instructions not to open them under any circumstance, but to hand carry them to the U.S. and present them to a U.S. customs officer. After a long ride back to the hotel, we had dinner and called it an evening.
