Can someone tell Lily we're in San Francisco

Hello all -

We made it - we are HOME!! Ok – so it is 4 am in SF and this beautiful little girl still thinks we are in China where it is 7 pm – she has been up since midnight and unfortunately Maryellen, Sheila and I did not sleep as well on the plane as her (she had this cool basinet – it did look like we shoved her in a size 6 shoe box and she was a 6 1/2 shoe - But it worked and she slept a lot) – We looked like we were in a size 9 shoe box and were are clearly a size 13 - so we did not sleep as well – so we are a bit tired!!

It is an odd sensation when you leave one place – travel for over 11 hours and end up in another three hours before you left! You might say that Friday was the longest day of the trip!

We got up at 6 am in Hong Kong - Maryellen wanted to sleep in a bit and handed her a toy to play with – a Tom-Tom - we got up shortly there after! We then had breakfast and went swimming – we got on a plane at 4 PM and landed in SF at 1PM the same day.

As I sit here at 4 am with a breath strip on my nose – I snore and Sheila needed a break – I just got her back to sleep as we watched Mulan – Trying to keep the theme going (and she too loved the entire Donny Osmond song!) I realized this beautiful little girl is in for a very exciting adventure – we already met a few new friends and as Diana so perfectly put it - she met a new love today!

I am so blessed that I got to be here for the beginning of her fantastic journey - I can not wait for all of you too meet her!!

Love to all from honorable number 2 Yee-Yee!! Geraldine

  • Hi Maryellen,

    A big Congratulations! I just got caught up on the Briscoe girls' excellent adventure in China, and couldn't be happier for you. Lily is a doll! Looking forward to meeting her in person. Lena
