We are here!!

We made it to Ch*na!! After a minor hiccup we arrived at our hotel in Beij*ing at about 5:30 pm Thursday (Ch*na time).
We had a very teary and emotional goodbye at the airport when we left. Our sweet David is having such a hard time. I am missing him and the rest of the kids like crazy already.
Alaina was such a trooper and did so well on the plane and while traveling. She is feeling a bit out of her element, but we have been able to talk her through it. We were even able to use it to help her understand how Aliyah is going to feel when she is placed in our arms.
It is about 4 am now. We all are wide awake and up. Today at 8 am a driver from New Day will be picking us up so we can go for our visit at New Day Foster Home. We are so excited and Cannot wait to meet all of the wonderful staff and volunteers and of course the sweet kids too!
I will post some more later and will hopefully have some pictures to share too.
