Born in the USA

We have encountered a few problems having our baby in China. Its like living in a little life-boat that keeps springing leaks. We fix up one problem, and another two pop up. So basically, after frantically trying to manage leaks but still finding ourselves sinking, we have decided to head home to the US to have our little girl. We found out that we have to return to the US to get a new kind of visa anyway, so having the plane ticket, it just makes sense to have the baby while we are there =)
I (Amy) arrived in SLC last night (May 15th). Since I have been pregnant, traveling is difficult for me. However, after running into the cement median on the freeway (our driver fell asleep) and missing my connecting flight (I fell asleep right there in the terminal!), I eventually made it to Utah safely.
So I would love to hear from you who are in Utah too! My cell phone number while I am here is 801-735-3387. My email is amyloucurtis@gmail.com. I will be here from May 15th to July 29th and should have the baby sometime in the end of June or maybe beginning of July. Sam, unfortunately, had to stay and work for a while longer, but will join me here in about a month (June 11th! I can't wait!!)

So glad you'll be in UT when I'm UT! Can't wait to see your cute, and I'm sure very large, pregnant belly :). Hopefully your family is taking good care of you!

My mom will be happy to hear you are having the baby in the USA.:) I wish I was going to UT for a visit while you and Mad were in town. What are your plans for the holidays?

Happy to hear you are back for a little while! Have you sorted out details enough to have found a provider and a place to deliver?

You know, I was really looking forward to the crazy, scary, psycho birth story you would have had from China. What a let down :) I'm actually really glad you decided to come back to have your little one. I don't know, the NS might have been spiked with something (like dirt) that could have given you pain relief. You never know. Which hospital are you delivering at?
