We said goodbye to Zhou in Guangzhou and started on our journey at 8AM China time on Wednesday. The plane rides were uneventful and Sarah did quite well. We had a little extra leg room on the really long flight. We were in the first row of a new section on the plane. There were no flight delays or cancellations. When the customs officer said, "Welcome Home!" there was never a more meaningful statement! We were so glad to be back in the good old USA!
After being up for over 28 hours, we finally were home. And it was still Wednesday!
When Abby first came home, she was not phased at all by the dogs and even would point and jabber something in Chinese to them like she was bossing them around. So we were not expecting a big deal with Sarah. But, Sarah is scared of the dogs. She was playing in the play room last night when one of them walked up behind her and she actually screamed. Poor thing! So we're trying to introduce her to them slowly. I'm sure she's never been exposed to animals before and these dogs are bigger than her. If they are in the same room with her, she's on our lap or in our arms. But at least she's not screaming any more.
We'll be getting over jet-lag and time change differences for a couple of days, so I'm not sure how much I'll be posting. But we are so glad that this part of our journey for Sarah is through and we can start the next part of the journey with her in our family!
