I can't believe it has been almost 2 weeks since we arrived home from China! I can't even begin to explain the joy I felt after 15 months of paper work and preparation and almost 3 weeks in China to be finally home with our new daughter. The airplane ride went pretty well despite Avery and I being pretty sick. 18 hours is a long time to be on a plane. We flew from Hong Kong to Tokyo and Tokyo to Atlanta. She only fussed for about 30 or so minutes when she was so exhausted and couldn't relax enough to sleep. Poor thing was used to sleeping in a crib her whole life and never having anyone to hold her that falling asleep while someone was holding her was difficult. Thankfully, Lucy came to my rescue as I was so sick and my back was killing. She was able to get Avery to sleep. Going through immigration was super simple and we were out the door pretty fast to all our family who was waiting on the other side of the doors. Addy surprised me the most! I thought she would start crying when she saw another baby in my arms, but she came right up to us and with a big smile on her face said, "My sister." Lucy's husband and children were there along with my new friends Amanda, her husband Patrick, and their daughter Morgan. It was good to be home! Oma made a great meal that I was unfortunately unable to eat, but it was still nice that she went through so much effort.
