HERE WE COME!!!

We have the passport and visa in our hand and we are coming home tonight!! We leave Hanoi at midnight, fly through Tokyo, and then home to Dallas. WOOOO HOOOOO!!! I can't believe that we are done. It seems a little unreal to me. I can't believe that we are coming home with our Lucy. It was strange to me thinking about Lucy leaving Vietnam. She has no idea that she is leaving her country and starting a new life in the US with us. It is a little sad that she will have such little exposure to her roots. We will do all that we can to teach her about Vietnam, but it will be different.

For those of you in Dallas, we will be home at 9:45 am Thursday morning. I don't have the flight number with me, but we are flying directly from Tokyo, so you can look it up if you want to greet us. We would love to see you all. Please please pray for our travel and that it goes smoothly. We are hoping that some miracle will happen and Miss Priss will sleep most of the flight. The flight tonight should be easy. She should snooze the whole time. The flight from Tokyo is another story. We'll see how it goes.

We love you all and can't wait for you all to meet Lucy in person. SEE YOU IN THE USA!!!!!!!

Welcome HOME Lucy!!!! I would do anything to be there tomorrow and see you three get off the plane. Can't wait to see the pictures and we are both chomping at the bit to get to Dallas to meet this little superstar in person.

Congratulations on FINALLY bringing her home!!! It's been a long ride - but well worth the wait, I'm sure.

Much love to you three! Safe travels,
Liz

Welcome home Lucy!!!

I remember those sad feelings of taking our kids out of VN. I've felt it each time. And it hits me at home too....that I probably know more about VN than they do even though that where they were born and lived for the first part of their lives.

You can teach Lucy as much as you can and then some day you can all visit again when she's older and can understand. Our oldest is 8yo and he and our middle son will be coming with us on our next adoption trip. Their first return back to VN. I can't wait!

Welcome home Lucy!! I'm sure she did great on the flights :)
