The Long Trip

We made it to Beijing! It was quite an adventure and a wonderful reminder that the Lords timing is perfect. We were discouraged that we had such a long layover in Chicago but it turned out to be a blessing because the plane we were on had to divert and make an emergency landing in Cincinatti, Ohio. Although it was a bit nerve racking, we felt so happy to be safe and sound on the ground after we landed. We, unbelievably, we're able to get to Chicago (with all our luggage) and make our connecting flight to Beijing. Fred was amazed at how big our plane was! The time did go by quicker than we had anticipated. When we landed in China, we felt like cheering. We are so much closer now to Nellie and this is all starting to seem real. I will enjoy sightseeing here in Beijing, but my heart is with going to get our sweet little girl. I am missing my little ones at home, but it sounds like they are having fun with their Grandparents which is comforting.
