I made it to China! I left my house at 4:45 AM on Saturday morning. Have I mentioned that I'm not a morning person? My flight from Newark to Beijing was 13 hours, which was a nice surprise. The C*ntinental rep told me it was an 18 hour flight when I booked the trip.

Last week was a long week at work. I was so busy; I didn't have a lot of time to think about leaving for China. I arrived home late on Friday night. Thankfully, I was already packed. It hit me when I was at the airport and the C*ntinental Rep said, "Two bags to Beijing." I almost cried. Needless to say, I completely enjoyed my flight to Beijing. It was so nice to sleep and not read work emails. :)

It's 6:45 AM in China, which would be 7:30 PM Texas time. Today I'm heading to the Foster Home! I'm so excited!

I'm so glad you made it there safely! I've been waiting for a post or email.

Thanks for the text the morning of your flight. By the time I got it, you were in the air so I didn't text back. I can't wait to hear all about the trip once you get back.

It will be strange not talking to you for so long.

Love,

D
