If you all would be willing to present these requests to our Lord through prayer, we would be grateful as we begin our travel home at 530 pm Friday your time. We arrive home 27 hours later, after three flights, at 900 pm Saturday, April 22. Just typing this seems exhausting.
Here are some requests...
No bloody noses for Anna Mei. She had three big ones on the last fight. Her pjs looked like she had been through a war.
Rest for all of us.
No flight delays.
Patience for waiting through each flight and layover. Guangzhou, China to Beijing- Beijing to Detroit-Detroit to Cedar Rapids
Ease as we exit the bureaucracy here..security, suitcases, and paperwork.
Minimal trauma for our Ellie as we take her from all she has ever known.
We can't thank you enough for all you have done to support our Ellie's adoption. She is a treasure and we can't wait for you to meet her.
If anyone wants to welcome us home at the Cedar Rapids airport, we arrive at 900 pm Saturday, April 22 on a Delta flight from Detroit. We can't wait to be home!
Leslie. Anna Mei, and Ellie Grace
