One year ago today...

we were getting on a plane to travel across the world to meet our precious little girl. The night before, David and I had stayed up finishing the last packing details. We woke the kids up in the wee hours of the morning, and headed for David's parent's house. There was a lot of traffic and we were running late, but we had planned in extra time so we weren't too nervous. We left our van at David's parent's house and a friend of theirs drove us to the airport. First, we flew to Portland and then on to Japan. Whew! That was a long flight. We're not big movie watchers, but there were no T.V.'s on that flight and with four kids on board, I had been planning on a couple of hours (of the 13 hour flight) to be taken up with an on-board movie. Ah, well...we made it to Japan and had a half-an-hour to get through customs and board our flight to Beijing. We made it on time and were so very, very grateful! The airplane to Beijing was beautiful, and we arrived in the evening and went straight to bed. Here are pictures of my sweet girls, enjoying their backpacks, which were filled with in-flight activities.

Stay tuned...for more Journey to Grace adventures.
