Home

We are home! Our trip was grueling, but MyLinh was a trooper! She slept for good portions of both flights, and we all took a 3-4 hour nap at the airport hotel in Seoul (the only sleep Alex and I had during those 48 hours).

It felt so good to touch down on American soil and see our precious family waiting with arms open for our girl. MyLinh loved meeting aunties and uncles and her Gram and Papa B. The car seat wasn't as rough for her as anticipated, but she lost the day's nourishment after the windy road home. (The car seat has been officially been initiated!) Poor kiddo!

Brothers are on their way home to meet her now. God is good! We are thanking and praising Him for His many blessings, including the joy of having you all on this journey with us.
