Day 17- Last full day in China

Today we went down to the lobby at 2 PM to take a few group pics, then off to the American Consulate at 3 PM. The entire "ceremony" there didn't take long - we just had to wait in line for them to confirm that we were the people on our passports, then we had to all stand and take an oath that everything we have signed our name to during this adoption is true and accurate. There were probably about 60 babies with 60 families in the room being adopted out to America on this day. I think the lady told us that there are about 6,000 children adopted from China to the US each year??? Couldn't really hear her b/c her mic wasn't working and babies were crying.

We went back to the hotel and spent the evening packing.
