All my bags are packed. But am I ready to go?
Sure what the heck... It's only the longest flight that I've ever been on. That's a big deal in and of itself. I mean a visit to a new continent is pretty cool. However, there's a much bigger thing happening than just the trip itself. I'll meet my son for the first time and bring him home on. I've described this as a last minute vacation where I'll be bringing home a life changing souvineer. While the later is true (although Jae's more than a souvineer), the former doesn't feel like a great description.
The nerves about this trip are hard to describe. Will Jae recognize my wife and I from pictures? Will Jae be able to relate that those two people in a small 4"x6" picture are actually life size people just like his foster family that has been taken care of him for over a year?
When will be be able to "keep" him for good? Just before the flight? Or on Friday before the flight, giving us a whole three days to get acquianted before the flight back home? TBD...
I'm really excited for this next part in my life.
