Hello from Tokyo

Well, we made it safe to Tokyo. We are very tired. The flight was no where near as miserable as I thought it would be. It went relatively quickly until the last hour or so. It is 6 pm Japan time and we are about to go to bed. Mom and Dad, we tried to call you but it said that your phone won't accept any unknown callers. So, now you know that we are here safely and will be off to Ho Chi Minh City in the morning.

I didn't sleep at all on the flight. I can't turn my mind off. I think that the enormity of what is happening is all sinking in. I just keep thinking about the first time we lay our eyes on Lucy. What an amazing moment it will be. Despite my lack of sleep, the man next to me on the flight took some sort of miracle sleeping pill and slept literally the entire flight. I was so jealous.

Okay, next time you here from me will be from Vietnam on Christmas Day!!!!! We are so blessed.

One more thing...

SO strange to look at your counter ticker and see it say ZERO days, 1 HOUR, 5 MINUTES and seconds until Christmas in Vietnam.

Zero days!! You are SO CLOSE!
