Traveling the World: What Do You Pack?
I’m less than a week away from our China departure date (December 21). Tickets are booked and I wrestle with what to pack when traveling the world.
It’s interesting how I have whittled down my normal packing list to the bare essentials. Traveling light is the best way to go. At least I think it is.
Today, I packed Little Dude’s suitcase. A grandma needs to bring some goodies to Colorado to put under the Christmas tree, don’t you think? Books, a couple of Garanimals outfits (love the mix and match idea), a toy plane and a stuffed puppy. Everything he needs. 🙂
Though, all he needs, and it packs very small, is LOVE.
And we have plenty of that to give.Though, all he needs, and it packs very small, is LOVE. And we have plenty of that to give. Click To Tweet
I made a couple of activities for the long flights. We will also pack crayons, books, coloring book, snacks, and other busy toys in a backpack I call our “Emergency Flight Bag.”
But more than anything, we need your prayer for this journey!!
What a Christmas; Alicia says, every other will pale in comparison. Little Dude is our gift. Adopted into love.
And this reminds me of Jesus – the best present ever. He came so we could be adopted into His forever family.
Time is Short: I am Ready for Traveling the World
So you may not hear from me for awhile depending on our access to communication in China. But I will journal the journey and take pictures to share when I return.
In the meantime, pray for this sweet baby’s transition to his forever family.

Thanks for letting me be the proud Grandma. We are still not quite sure what Little Dude will call me. Lao Lao (pronounced like ‘how-hoe’) is maternal grandmother in Mandarin. But we will see. As long as he calls me, I don’t mind what words he uses.
Hang on sweet boy, Mama and Grandma will be there soon…December 26th to be exact.
Thanks for traveling the world with us. You are precious to me…
P.S. If you would like an update, please leave a comment below and I will share news with you as soon as I can. And stay tuned as Alicia will be announcing Little Dude’s name soon.
