Goodbyes and we're in Dubai!!!!

Here we are right before we left for the airport!This is what the family looked like before we separated from one another!
Okay, well, a little or a lot more crying after this funny shot,
but it's worth it!!!! Donna took us to the airport, and Deana, Derek and Darci met us there. It was so nice of them to send us off. We prayed together before we left. We love you and miss you guys.

Our first flight out of Cincy was really bumpy. I was a nervous wreck the whole time!! Our flight from JFK to Dubai on Emirates was really not bad. I was really dreading it, but we were able to get some rest and made it safely! God is good!!! Doug is sleeping. He couldn't wait to get to bed. I am sooo excited about what tomorrow holds! It's 10:35 p.m. here. Dubai is 8 hours ahead of you guys. We head out early tomorrow morning...5:30..and our flight leaves around 8 something. Not too much longer and we'll have our sweetie! Cannot wait!!!
Brennan and Bryson, we're so proud of you guys! Thanks for being so awesome! Lola is going to be so spoiled by you!!! We miss you! Praying for you!!!!!
Thanks for everyone's continued prayers. Tomorrow's our Gotcha Day if all goes as planned!!!!!!
Love to you all!!!
