We are back home! The travels were brutal. By the time we made it through customs and immigration in Chicago, we had just enough time to run (no exaggeration) to the gate for our Detroit flight. Oh what a sight we must have been. On the bright side, of our 13 hour flight from Beijing to Chicago, Ella slept 9 of those hours. That is 9 consecutive hours. Ella Man Li is the Teflon traveler, for sure.
We had a fabulous welcoming committee at baggage claim* in Detroit. We appreciate your making the trek to the airport so, so much. (Video below.) We came home to a clean house, a refrigerator stocked with food and a freezer stuffed with dinners to heat up later.
So it seems that the unwavering support of our family and friends continues. We are humbled. We are thankful.
We are rubbing our eyes in disbelief. Ella is beautiful. We are smitten a thousand times over. Here's hoping the jet lag exits quickly.
H, L & E
*It seems our baggage had a difficult time making that connecting flight to Detroit as well. It was just delivered to our front door 30 minutes ago.
