We made it!

We made it to Hong Kong!  The plane ride was looooong.  We had a stressful, long wait before the flight waiting to see if we would all have seats together.  When we first arrived at the airport, all three of us were sitting separately.  They were able to work it out that Avery and I were sitting together, but Jon was two rows behind us.  We had to wait to get seated on the plane to find out if the person sitting next to me on the isle would switch seats with Jon.  Praise the Lord, because the guy had no problem with that and we were soon all seated together and ready to get in the air!  (The guy in the background of the 2nd picture is the guy who ended up switching with Jon!)

 It took awhile to get through immigration and get our bags and I was so happy to see our guide holding the CCAI sign when we finally walked out of customs!  They drove us from the airport, about a half hour drive, to our hotel, the Hyatt Shatin.  A hot shower and a comfy bed never felt so good!

 We woke up at 4:30am Hong Kong time and couldn't go back to sleep.  Breakfast didn't start until 6:30, so we just relaxed and watched the sun come up.  The mountain and water views are just beautiful!

The hotel breakfast was AMAZING!  I've never seen Avery eat that much for breakfast and she was eating her cut up bread and fruit with chopsticks :)

The views all around the hotel are so pretty!  There are gardens, a really nice pool, and a little play area.

Our guide will be here in a little over an hour to take us over the border to the Shenzhen airport.  We will have an hour or so plane ride to Changsha, the capital of Hunan province.  Tomorrow sometime, we will be taken by another guide to the Registration Office to meet Asher!  We are so excited to finally have him in our arms!

Thank you all for your prayers!  We have definitely felt them and have felt the Lord with us.  We hope to have internet access at our next hotel, and will update after we meet our little boy!  Love you all!
