We are on our way!!!

First, I cannot believe this day is finally here! In roughly 60 hours I will be holding this little daughter.........

We had to wake up around 3:45 AM this morning and took a 6 o'clock flight to Newark.  We took a small 24-passenger plane and were only slightly alarmed when the stewardess asked us and a few other people to move to the back of the plane to balance out the weight! lol The turbulence was horrible and it felt like we were on a roller coaster but we made it.

At 12 today we will board a non-stop fligt to Beijing before catching a flight from there to Nanchang, Jiangxi. I think we will be traveling for 28 hours and we lose 12 hours wiyh the time change so it lucky w have te excitement of Ellie pulling us through.

It is rainy here but warmer so we are ready........I can do this!


  1. I am so excited and happy for you! I hope you are able to rest on your flight. Best wishes. You will be there soon!

  2. Oh my goodness!! This is so exciting!!! Good luck with everything--I hope the longer flight is turbulence-free!

  3. Wow, so exciting. Hope to be following in your footsteps in about a month!

  4. Ugh, I hate small planes! Hopefully the big flight will go smoother! You seemed more excited than scared in your email so that's good!! Praying for you on your flight right now!!
