We're home!!!

We made it!!!! We got home yesterday afternoon around 4pm. Laila did well on all the flights, her sleep pattern was a little messed up so she didn't sleep as well as we would've hoped but that may help us get her adjusted to the time change easier. When we landed in Denver we changed Laila into a cute little outfit and got on the train to the main concourse, we were SOOOOOOO excited to see our family. My dad, Scott's parent's, Scott's sister and her 2 kids met us at the airport. They had t-shirts made with our 1st family picture and it said... Laila JeanneLi Van Gieson, Gotcha Day, May 4, 2009. It was really nice. Some people from our flight that got to the concourse before us told them that we were on the way, they recongized us from the t-shirt pictures. When we saw our family, tears just flowed. We did it!! We were back home with our daughter and family, it's the best!! I'm laying in bed with my daughter now, life doesn't get any better. I will post again in a few days, wanted to let you all know we're home. I will add pictures on the next post. Love, Scott, Joanna and Laila

Thanks for sharing your journey with us...as I anxiously wait to make the trip to China to get Molly, it helped to read about your trip. (I don't know why, but it did.)

When you add pictures with your next blog post, be sure to revise your Profile...you're not waiting to get your beautiful Laila, you have her and you are a FAMILY!!!!!

Did you have the perfect trip to China, or what? It even sounds like your flight home was great?! Awesome!! Enjoy those first days of getting time adjusted...best advice is to get out in the sun each day and immediately get on home time. :)
