We're Home!

1 - 40 minute flight from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, delayed 1 hour, arrived at airport hotel at 1:00 am.

Up at 6:30 am. 1 - 14.5 hour flight from Hong Kong to Detroit, MI, included 1/2 hour of hard crying from Suhn, smooth sailing after that - thanks for praying!!!



1 - 2 hour layover in Detroit followed by 1 - 40 minute flight to Chicago


Met in Chicago by Kasey, Daniel and Alea (thanks guys!!)



1 -2 hour car drive home - so hard to stay awake, so ready to be home.

Met at home by kids, grandparents, sisters and cousins.

So good to be home!!!!

That last picture is perfect! I love it! Suhn looks very happy sitting right in the middle of all her siblings :) She fits just perfect in your family.
Cannot wait to see you and Suhn! Your hosting Bible Study on Tuesday so there will be lots of kids at your house and we can all see you then :) Ha! I think Marie is going to take over since you are probably just a bit overwhelmed. Hope you get some rest these next few days! Love you and so thankful for your safe trip home!

Lots of love to you all!

Praise God!!! That last picture of Suhn smiling with her brothers and sisters is priceless.

Truly, weeping may remain for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

We will continue to pray. Thank you, God, for your mercy!!!
