We're Here!

Wow, I can't believe that we are actually in Taiwan right now. :)

The trip was very smooth. Both our flight to Chicago and our flight to Taipei were on time and very smooth. And all of our luggage arrived, can't ask for more than that.

Mr. Yeh, Alex, and the son of another couple here adopting (Hi Travis!) met us at the airport. It was so great to finally see Mr. Yeh and Alex in "real" life after seeing him on so many blogs over the past year.

We didn't get to see much of Taipei last night since it was dark when we arrived. But so far, it seems very nice. We have a great view of Taipei 101 outside of our window. Everyone has been very friendly and helpful. Especially my fellow yahoo group member Joyce! :)

We checked into our hotel at around 1 am, and tried to get a few hours of sleep. We are leaving here in a half an hour (6:30 am) to go to Taroko Gorge. I'll post some pictures and more details later this evening. (If I'm not asleep.)


Jake & Sara:
We love and miss you two SO much!! Jake, yesterday there were SO many boys playing DSs at the airport and we thought so much of you. Sara, we see cute little girls and think of you constantly. We will always love you too..forever and ever, no matter what. XOXOXOXOX

Oh wow the Gorge looks and sounds spectacular! I bet you guys must be so exhausted by now though, hopefully the unexpected Typhoon will do no harm but give you a nice little rest.

So wonderful that you will meet Tessa's birth mother, I can only imagine all the emotions and the butterflies. Do you have the list of suggested questions from the yahoo group file? Also, leave your video camera running the whole time your with her because its bound to be overwhelming trying to take it all in and then you can also have one of the translation services do a transcript from it for you in case there was anything you didn't catch at the time.

Hope the Typhoon passes quickly!
