I just have one more update for you-- they're coming home tomorrow!!!
They explored Hong Kong Friday and Saturday, and then they got up Sunday morning and wrapped up their time in China: one last hotel breakfast, one last repacking of suitcases. Their flight leaves at 2:30 pm (1:30 am US Central time), and they are scheduled to land in St. Louis late tomorrow night. During their Dallas layover, the Schaefers will go through an Immigration process, and Samuel will officially become a US citizen. 💗
