GOTCHA....

"I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him." 1 Samuel 1:27


I cannot even begin to explain how amazing today was! We are so happy to finally have our Mylee in our arms! Our flight got into Taipei a little early so John and Cheryl had to scramble to get to the HSR when we got off the train. John's friends Craig Thompson and Peter Bennett met us at the airport and rode with us on a shuttle bus to the HSR. We had 12 suitcases all together so it quite an achievement to get them all on the train in around 5 minutes time. I don't know what we would have done without Craig and Peter there! Then we had about an 1 1/2 hour train ride. I didn't really get too nervous until about the last 15 minutes of the ride....then my heart started beating really fast and I was getting emotional. John was supposed to meet us at the platform when our train arrived....but they were running late because they didn't expect us until around 10:00 am and it was 9:00 am. The workers at the train station were so nice, they helped us unload our 12 pieces of luggage and started heading toward the elevator with it when we saw John running down the station.


Cheryl called and told us to call her when we were getting on the elevator.....and I said "Cheryl, we're getting on the elevator right now." She said "Okay, gotta go!" and hung up. When we were coming up on the elevator the kids were hollering at me saying "There she is Mom! There she is!" But I was looking the wrong way....until there she was! All smiles! Andrew and Moriah were holding up a banner with Mylees picture on it. I went straight to Mylee and wrapped my arms around her and just breathed this moment in....and it was AMAZING!
