Hello from Beijing!

We made it to Beijing!! After a very bouncy take off and then a relatively smooth, but loooong flight we made it to Beijing at about 3:00---P.M on Friday here, A.M back home. The flight was good. We had free on demand movies and they fed us three times! The man sitting next to us moved his seat, so we lucked out and had a seat in between us to strech out a little. Neither of us got much sleep. We're going to go out now and stock up on some bottled water and try to stay up a little longer so we're not up at 2 AM. We meet tomorrow morning for some touring and I'll try to post pictures after that.

B, J, and El--We hope you had a good first night. Ella, did Brody sleep with you? We love you!!

As I wrote in my email to you we had a good night.

We watch your plan on the flight path compliments of Continental Airlines. When we went to bed you were over Russia.

Ella spontaneously said, "Good night "Mamma and Daddy" !

Love you guys,

Congratulations on your journey. I am an FCC member, just following along! I was wondering what orphanage your son is from. I was just in Jiangsu, in Nov 08, receiving my son. I wonder if they are from the same orphanage and if they would know ea other. My son is 8 yrs old and from Suzhou, Jiangsu.
Have a wonderful journey, it is definitely a wonderful experience. God Bless, safe travels and hopes for an easy transition for Owen.
