Friday morning we said a beautiful family prayer before heading out to the airport. I hugged my kids with all the love I could squeeze into their little bodies and thanked them for their sacrifice so that this trip was possible. I know it's not easy being the ones left behind, but they willingly agreed. There is so much power in a family who supports one another.
|Goodbye Austin and my sweet Jaxon, Macie and Macoy|
The flights over were uneventful, all except for the part where I stood in the wrong line in D.C. for 45 minutes and almost made us miss our next flight, and the part about sitting in a very small economy seat for 24 hours, and the part about Faith getting deathly ill on the last leg from Germany to Chennia. We chose look at the positives - flying here is much faster and easier than taking a boat and our seats were very close to the bathroom.
