Actually, I don't know what kind of plane we'll be on because that's Jamie's department. I just know it has two really big wings, and hopefully a bit of leg room. Twenty-two hours travel time is a long time to be contorted like a pretzel. We have been spoiled with air travel. When we lived in Germany, we flew between continents on the corporate plane....LOTS of space. I remember traveling coach afterward and Jacob asking where the personal TV was. Welcome to the real world, honey. Then when we traveled to Taiwan to bring Charlie home, we had enough miles to upgrade to business class. This time...cattle class. I can hear the mooing now...
The two little ones are off on vacation with my parents, my brother and sister-in-law and their two teens. Laura and Charlie will have a blast and come home totally spoiled! Should be fun "detoxing" them after 2.5 weeks being gone. Honestly, though, I'm not concerned about them one bit...they're in great hands. As I left them, they both were waving and smiling. They know how good they're gonna have it!
Jamie, Jacob and I fly out on Friday, and will meet our new little boy on Monday. I have butterflies...no, bats...in my tummy. I'm nervous and excited, wondering how he will react to us, how we'll communicate, and of course, hopeful that all of our paperwork will be complete and without delay.
I know I have a great group praying for us while we're gone. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I feel great comfort in knowing that prayers are going out for us all. Check back for updates!
