On the way home....

We are getting ready to get on a van for a 3 hour ride to Hong Kong.  We will then stay one night in Hong Kong and board an 11am flight there bound for Chicago!  There is no way to say how excited we all are to be coming home finally!  This has been the longest trip and I'm so ready to be home with Steve and my friends.

If you have emailed me, texted me or tried to Skype me and couldn't reach me, please believe it is not personal.  I have barely had time to blog, much less Skype, checked facebook etc.  But believe me when I say I am missing each and every one of you.  The emails with scriptures, positive thoughts and prayers have helped more than you know.

If I can be so bold as to ask...please pray very hard for our trip home.  Kylie is a good baby but she likes to be up and about.  Sitting on a plane for 14 hours has the potential to be miserable.  Pray for our safety, our sanity, our health and that Kylie's ears will not bother her.  Cleft babies are known for having ear infections until they get tubes, so please pray that her ears will not hurt on the plane.

It's going to be a long day tomorrow and I'm going to need all the prayers I can get.  It will be 10pm Wednesday night US time when we leave Hong Kong.  We will land in Nashville (barring any delays) at 6:17pm Thursday night.  We welcome anyone and everyone to come see us in.  I'll be a blubbering mess I'm sure.  I can't wait to see your faces.

WE ARE COMING HOME!!!

Yay! So glad your trip is almost over and you'll be home soon. I'm praying for you. The flight home is a challenge. Take it one step at a time and keep praying. And if you have to cry, let it out. I did. You'll never see anyone again from the plane anyway - that was how I justified it in my head.
