Travel Arrangements

Our travel arrangements returning home for those who are interested are as follows:

Northwest Airlines Flight 1101 from Detroit to Nashville, arriving in Nashville on Friday evening (10/24) at 7:54 p.m.

We welcome all who want to come to welcome us home. We cannot guarantee we’ll look like anything after having been “up” for 28 hours and on three planes, but we can certainly assure you that we will welcome friendly faces and will probably be the ones kissing the ground when we land.

Please understand that we will be holding Ellie during our time at the airport as we have found that new situations are still challenging for her and it makes it difficult for her later. You are more than welcome to come see her and us, we just feel that for her well-being, it is better than she not be passed around at the airport. We promise to allow lots of holding time in the upcoming months after she has adjusted to her new home. She has done very well so far and we are hopeful that her transition to home will go as well! We are SO excited to see you all – we’ve missed home so, so much!!

Stayed tuned tomorrow for our posts on border crossing, hotel experiences and other Almaty experiences!!

Tomorrow we have our embassy appointment at 3:00 p.m. Say prayers that this goes well.

Hugs to all of you!!
