Finally

We made it to Seoul!! It's 8pm now, which is 5am at home and we haven't been to bed since Friday night so none of this gibberish may make any sense. The flight was looooooooong but Korean Airlines was supremely awesome and it made it not so awful. All I kept thinking about was how was I going to occupy all this time with a baby. Yikes. We are at the hotel right now and just got some sandwiches and are planning on eating and passing out. We have a city tour in the morning and then we meet Kimchi and his foster mother at 1pm. I'm nervous and scared and excited. This is just so crazy, I can't even describe it. I don't think it's really set in that we're not only about to meet our son for the first time, but that we're doing it on the other side of the earth. Driving into Seoul was surreal because it's so densely populated and there is neon everywhere and people everywhere and it's just freaking me out. I'm too tired to post pics right now so I'll do that tomorrow.

I am so glad you made it and I know how tired you are. I was up almost all night myself worrying about your flights and such. Hopefully you are sleeping now and will wake up refreshed and ready to go. I can't wait until Thursday night.

Since you left I notice I keep counting ahead 10-11 hours and wondering where you are/what you are doing. It's weird to think you are so far away. I will be thinking of you tomorrow (today in your time now) when you do all that cool stuff and get to meet Max!
