Welcome to Amsterdam

My Mother and I have arrived in Amsterdam. I extremely happy that our first leg of our trip went very well (read: no sleeping on a terminal floor or sitting on a tarmac for hours!). We fell asleep immediately after dinner and never woke until we arrived in Amsterdam. That's my kind of flying.
We will have a lay over here for 7 hours and then fly to Almaty.
Thank you everyone for all your kind and encouraging words!

JJ's Aunt here.. Sleeping most of the trip is a good way to get there faster. Beck is one of the luckiest kids in the world. He will get a good home with 2 great parents.

Woo-hoo! I'm so happy to hear you arrived safely in Amsterdam! Too bad no time to explore the city - I was there for a week and LOVED it! Lots of bridges, bikes, and yummy pastries! We're thinking of you! Can't wait until you get Beck (and Tim Anara). Have fun :)

Yayy...so happy the first leg of your flight was uneventful. I'll be thinking of you and look forward to updates when you can post.

Now, if you can just get to Kyrg...kinda tough without a driver huh? Hang in there! Remember I expect the "female version" of this entire trip...I'll probably only get the condensed "man version" from Tim ;) Hug my baby for me and tell Tim I love him.
