Guangzhou, China to Tokyo to Minneapolis to Baltimore

Hi all:


Whew! What a long trip home. I can tell you how to get a 3-day weekend: Fly East from China to Baltimore, that's how!

We left our hotel in Guangzhou at 6:00 a.m. Saturday, December 2, and flew to Tokyo. We left Tokyo at 3:40 p.m. and flew 10 hours to Minneapolis arriving at 11:00 a.m. - Saturday December 2! Then on to Baltimore finally arriving back at the family's house around 5:30 p.m. - which felt like 6:30 a.m. Sunday December 3 to us. Yep, we were pooped.

Bringing Lilly home:


Lilly likes flying!

She had several bottles enroute on our 24-hour trip!!


We're home!!

Daddy and Abby are soooooo glad to be home!


Lilly meets Grandpa!


Lilly likes her high chair.


We've reached the end of the journey. I may have some overall reflections once I debrief.

I hope you enjoyed the trip!

Take care,

hrh

Just wanted to say hi. I saw on the ACFW boards that you live in CT. Me too. I'm in Waterford. I come into the Gales Ferry library every other Tuesday while my girls are at Girl Scouts. How funny!

Hi Janet:

Wow! Small world, ain't it? I'm up at Bill Library on Tuesday nights updating the library website, etc. Are you in any local writers' groups? Maybe we should start one ... :)

Hey girl! It is so nice to have your perspective and photos from our fantastic journey. Abby has been reading over your blog with me and is tickled to see herself prominently featured. Thanks!

I'm so glad you all enjoyed the entries. Big story in the Hartford Courant today about gender inequalities in China, but no mention of adoptions! Interesting ...
