30 hours of planes, trains and automobiles

Sorry for the delay in blogging but it has been a crazy few days. Tuesday was our Consulate appointment to get LK's visa to the US. We were then transferred to the train station where we took a couple hour train ride to Hong Kong. By the time we got settled in it was so late and we had to leave early the next morning to fly home. We started our journey home Wednesday morning at 6. Flew into Newark then to Nashville and finally home. The girls did awesomely well! We were amazed at how LK did. BG too! When we got home last night, my mom and dad and grandmother were here to meet LK. The kids were all sweet and excited to finally meet their new little sister. LK went straight to Haley. LK looked at Angel 0ur dog like she was an alien. I don't think she's ever seen a dog. The girls went to bed around midnight and by 4:30 am we were all up again. Needless to say they are exhausted but considering what they had to endure to get back home, they were angels. Did I say it is good to be home? It is sooooo good to be home! Thanks to all of your encouragement and prayers. LK is doing very well and we will have a doctor's appointment next week to see how her heart is doing. We are all very glad to be back together as a family!


  1. welcome hoooooooooooooooooome!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I'm so glad to read that you made it home safe and sound. Jet lag is a killer. It took me weeks to feel like a human again. I hope things go well next week at LK's doctor appt. I'll be praying for you ALL.

  3. PRAISE GOD you are home!!!! I PROMISE this jet lag stuff WILL get better. I thought I would DIE for about two weeks. You guys are probably handling it better than us. I had to call a friend to get re-assurance that it would get better. was so hard. We are praying for you guys as you get back on Alabama time!!! PLEASE let me know if we can do anything for you. Or...if you just need someone to talk to, give me a call!! I'm there for ya! In the meantime...know I'm continuing to pray!
    Love ya,
