We've arrived!

We made it to Beijing and got checked into our hotel. The flight was smooth and we had no trouble making our connection -- praise the Lord! But can I just say that 13 hours is LONG!!! I dozed off for awhile and woke up thinking that the flight was perhaps half over. Nope. Nine hours left to go. Thankfully both kids slept for around four hours and have been great travelers. Our guide Ling Ling was at the airport to meet us, and all of our luggage made it as well. We are going to try to stay awake for awhile yet so we can sleep all night. At this point, we are so tired that I don't think that will be a problem!

Tomorrow we have our agency orientation at 9:00. Ling Ling said that there are three families here with Holt this week, so we have just a small group. We are looking forward to meeting the other families in the morning. Thank you all so much for your prayers!


  1. So happy to hear you're there and that your children did so well with the flight!

  2. So glad you made it! Yes, it's a dreadfully long flight! God bless you as you prepare to meet Amelia soon. :o)
