Day 11ish: home!!!

After nearly 24 hours of travel, we are finally home!!! It was pretty grueling — a 12 hour flight from Hong Kong to San Francisco followed by practically running through the San Francisco airport to make our connection and another 3-1/2 hours to San Antonio. Rowynn was tired and sometimes it was hard for her to get comfortable on the flight but she never complained. She never even frowned. I’m pretty sure I frowned.

We arrived shortly after 4pm and Steve and the kids were waiting at arrivals with a surprise.

What a great greeting to see as we came down the escalator. And, Finnley was so happy to see her sister.

We drove home and the kids were fawning all over XiXi and she was smiling and giggling. At home she just took it all in from the moment she stepped out of the car. She looked at the house, pointed to the star over the door, smelled the roses and touched shrubs along the walkway. Her smile was so big!

I though the kids would pull her in three different directions, each trying to show her around and give her little gifts and cards they made for her.

Aidan’s class made a wonderful welcome banner and all his classmates and his teachers signed with nice messages.

She was full of smiles and seemed very happy. We can tell XiXi feels very welcome and very loved. Having a family suits her.
