We are here!!

     Yea!!  We made it!  Wow!  That's about the only nice thing I can say about that plane ride. (Gotta keep the testimony up! ) 

It could have been worse!  There... that's another nice thing!

     I have a splitting headache because my body thinks that it's 11 am and it needs it's coffee.  But, my China clock says it 11 pm.  So, I am going to get to bed!

     However, I do have to mention that it is obvious people are praying for me!   I felt it all day!   I was so peaceful.  Meet up with a family in Detroit that I had met on line.  We traveled the rest of the way together.  In Tokyo, we met an amazing older gentlemen and his wife.  I heard her pray the sweetest prayer, out loud, with her eyes open about getting to her hotel and the Lord surrounding her.  How can that not bring one peace??  They, along with some other family members and friends, were going to go play with kids in an orphanage for two weeks.  We had a really fun conversation with them.  We also meet an American family whose son is competing in the paraolympics in Beijing.

     Tomorrow... Forbidden City and acrobat show!  More then!  Keep praying!  Emme only has 2 more whole days without a mommy and daddy!

Great news! Hey, my uncle just gave me a fab tip: take Tylenol PM for the first two sleeps in China and the first two home and it'll help even out the jet lag. He travels all teh time for business to Japan and China.

Will be watching your blog for updates :)

I've been reading Mike & Linda's blog and seeing them bond w/ their precious one. Thinking this is you in just days! I can't wait till "gotcha day"!!!
BTW...Linda had a pretty bad headache when she woke up the other day and went out to get a massage, just $15 for an hour!! She felt SO much better! Maybe you could get one soon! You deserve it!!!
