We are HERE!!!

Well, we made it safely and are now in our apartment! We are exhausted to say the least, but oh so thankful to be here! From having just minutes to spare to catch our connecting flight in London to landing in an unexpected blizzard here to getting grilled by the customs officer here in country, it's been quite an experience already: )

We have a free day tomorrow and we haven't decided if we are going to try to see some sights or just rest. To say we're exhausted doesn't even begin to cover it! I've been up for over 24 hours with about an hour nap somewhere in there and our little man had a hard time sleeping on our flight to London (9+ hours) and slept a bit better on our flight from London (3+ hours) so he is not feeling himself either.

Niko, our driver, said we'd probably be in the city until Sunday and then travel to Elizabeth's region and, Lord-willing, meet her on Monday!! So in a few days, we will be holding our baby girl for the first time!

I'll leave you with a few pics from our trip so far. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have more energy to elaborate on our experiences and thoughts!

After a 9+ hour flight, we were looking a bit tired!


  1. Brings back memories! So glad you made it there safe...praise God!

  2. Oh man that DOES bring back so many memories! You guys have been on my mind all day. Rest and have fun.

  3. The apartment looks so familiar! Our decorators must have been related! A flood of memories comes back thinking of those days leading up to seeing our precious Andrew and Kathlena for the first time. And that was four years ago now!
    We anxiously wait with you to see that first picture of you with your daughter; all those months of paperwork and waiting instantly realized in your arms...such an amazing time! Praying for rest and endurance for the next leg of your journey.

  4. Love how the washer is conveniently located with easy access from the toilet. :) So sorry to hear the jet lag is bad!! We sent our dossier today, so you can tell the folks there we did just what they asked and got it updated ASAP: 8 business days, to be exact. God is guiding this, we can feel it, and everything came together so fast. :)
    I can't wait to see pics of Elizabeth meeting her family! Get some rest!

  5. Yay! ! Anxious to hear about customs grilling you. I think I am most nervous about that!
