Home at last...

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we are home. It was a rough trip. Claire barely slept, like maybe about 5-6 hours broken up during the whole trip. We got stuck in Dallas b/c of late flights and had to stay the night. So nice to take a shower then have to put on the same clothes you already wore for 27 hours. Can you say disgusting? But we are home!!! The homecoming at the airport was awesome. Very overwhelming. I finally cried like a baby. We had people in the airport crying. Will tell you more later. Claire loves her new home, all her new family, and her new puppies. Pictures to come, but right now I have to cook some dinner, eat, then sleep!!! We are truly blessed!!!

Thank god you are home safe and sound.
I was worried for you guys. I hate flying anywhere after 9/11.
That child is blessed that you is yours, now you can be home and enjoy your family and your puppies that I know were overjoyed to see you again.
I bet those grandmas will be fighting over the baby..she is going to be so spoiled.
Lucky girl.

Welcome Home!!! Can't wait to see pictures of little miss in the USA.
Maya did not travel well on the plane, so you have my sympathy! She cried the whole flight- slept maybe 2 hours.

Hope you are doing well,
Janalee

Anne - I know how great it feels to get home with your baby - we just got home from Taipei on Wednesday and I am still so glad we are back! Hotel life is not fun with a child - even for a couple days. We ended up watching the elevators go up and down and playing in the fountains in the lobby - it was too hot to go outside - it was pretty boring. Katie is blossoming here with her big sister Shelby - not the scared toddler that would not eat anything but formula back in Taipei a couple days ago. Welcome Home! Susan H.

There's no place like home! I'm sure you're happy to return to the familiar. I wish you a speedy recovery from jet lag and smooth transition for Claire to her new surroundings. God's blessings!
