After 54 hours of planes, buses and airport floors, we finally arrived to our hotel, Ak Keme. It’s a very nice hotel, the view off our balcony is breath taking, but nothing felt better than a hot shower and a full night’s rest on a real bed!
We were surprised to meet other parents on our flight who were also coming to Kyrgyzstan for their adoptions. We all had a common connection and spent hours chatting and sharing our excitement.
Well, today’s the day we’ve been dreaming about! Finally meeting Beck and getting to hold him. I would have NEVER guessed just days ago that I would be here right now. This was such a whirlwind that I didn’t even have a chance to go shopping and buy him anything, but I guess at this point that doesn’t matter.. I get to actually SEE him and HUG him and KISS him, what could be better Well, perhaps Pringles. Yes we know he’s a big fan of them thanks to his honorary Aunt Tina, so perhaps I can get some on our trip over.

Whoa, what an ordeal! Smeat and a hard terminal floor as a bed? Not to mention spending 5 hours on a plane and not getting anywhere.... You guys deserve a medal!

That picture of your hotel view is stunning. I can't wait to see some pics of you with Beck from today, as I see that it's already afternoon there right now and I'm still in my jammies.

I'm thinking of you constantly, and praying for continued safe (if not comfortable) travel.
