We are home!!!!!

On Thursday we flew from Guangzhou to Beijing(a 3 hour flight), navigated through the enormous Beijing airport and through their extra heavy security, probably due to the upcoming Olympics (where William Michael decided he had enough of it all and had a BIG temper tantrum, the little guy got frisked and monitored and he was very MAD...what can you do?hee...hee, it's funny now, but wasn't really then) boarded a United flight to Chicago which was 2 hours late taking off so we sat on the plane. William Michael slept....10 out of 12 hours of the flight! Grace slept 8 hours! Dan and I were both able to sleep some and even enjoy some peace and quiet. Thank you for the thoughts and prayers, God really helped us on this travel day home. Whew....we are home, with suitcases and dirty clothes all over, but who cares. We are jetlagged, I slept from 1:30am to 5:30am but we'll all gradually get back to central standard time. It felt great to sleep in our own beds. More posts to follow as we adjust to the time, unpack and welcome William into our extended family and friends. The trip to China was amazing, and I miss it already!

Now the journey begins. I'm sooo happy for your family Gail I can't even begin to express it.

It was just over a year ago that we met and it seems like it has been much longer and yet other days seems just like yesterday.
