The First post was actually done back in February but I realized I had never finished working on my blog and I had forgotten I had started it!! Thanks to my good friend Cheri pushing me on this I guess I will have to try to work at it again!!

Okay! Wow it was quite a night last night. I think I had every emotion go through and I forget how I get when everything has to be done at once. It was so nice to go to the spring banquet and church last night with my mom and just relax!!!

So this is our update!

It looks like we are leaving on June 7th at 10:30 am. and of all things we will be on Northwest and God is amazing as I have such a peace about this. I was set on United until my husband and I started looking at the pros and cons.

With United we had to go to Hong Kong and spend at least $250 on a hotel in the airport not to mention another flight to get to Hong Kong and food while we were there for one night. It really kind of looked like it was adding up to be a lot of extra money. Also with United we had 1 1/2 hours to get through Customs. I am not sure how Chicago is with that but when we went through Cincinnati one it took us almost 2 hours to get through everything and that just did not seem like a lot of time. Also we would not get home until June 22.

With Northwest we have a 3 hour lay over in Detroit to get through customs and we do not have to go to Hong Kong as they fly directly out of Guangzhou and we will get home on June 21st.

I am in shock with how much plane fare is right now. It was the same price for United or Northwest so that didn't even matter. Also the prices for the sales fare was about the same as the adoption fare right now so we went with the adoption fare. I have to tell you though that Tempo Travel with Bethany has been wonderful. They answered all my dumb questions yesterday without batting an eye!!! :) I will let you know that I had a lot of them!!! You would think this being the 3rd adoption I would have it all down pat but I forgot everything I needed to know. We should have all the final arrangements made by today.

We will be flying home on June 21 at 6:05 pm so if any of you are in the Grand Rapids area on that day feel free to join us!!!
