Farewell to all that

We're heading home!!!! If all goes according to plan -- and I have no reason to believe it will, after everything we've been through this week -- we'll be home at 9 am on Sat. At breakfast this morning, we estimated that we've spent 22 hours in government waiting rooms in the last week, not to mention the 4 days sitting in our hospital room without moving. The upcoming day is going to be interesting, as we travel through 4 airports with 4 suitcases, 3 carry-on bags, and a baby. Packing our carry ons to make sure we have enough baby supplies for the trip is a challenge; since we've never done this before.
I have a very long post about our experience at the FRRO, but I'll wait to post it until we're home. In the mean time, I leave you with this picture of Micah's friends here at the VITS hotel. They have been very very interested in him, because in India, its customary that a baby doesn't leave the house for the first 45 days of its life, so the idea of a infant in a restaurant is quite the novelty. I think the VITS staff better get used to seeing it though; there's a lot of surrogacy babies in the pipeline!


  1. Its great to see all our friends at the VITS. All familiar faces. Safe travels home.

  2. Eeeek ... sounds like a bit more torture getting home when you just want to be home NOW. It is so worth it though. Nothing like we Aussies who have two five hour flights broken by a short 1.5 hour lay over in Singapore.

    you are nearly there! The Holy Grail is yours!
