We've Arrived!

We've arrived!

We are safely in Shanghai!  It's 4:30 in the afternoon.  We are worn out, but, thankful to be here!  We're so grateful that Tanner slept a lot on the plane.  Neither Jon nor I were able to sleep much, but, we're glad it's the afternoon so that we can get some dinner and go to sleep!

It was a little stressful getting to our hotel, Jon and Tanner enjoyed th Maglev train (that went 270 mph), then we took a taxi and then waited for our room to be ready and are now here in a nice room for the night.  Tomorrow we will take a train to Nanjing.

It's a bit overwhelming being here in a new country, being tired, and in a few days, meeting our new son!  Hopefully a little sleep will make everything better!

When 2010 began, you had NO IDEA that you would be in CHINA! We serve such a great God, who is full of joyous surprise blessings! :)
