Georgia, it is like an old sweet song...

We are home! It has been over 33 hours of traveling and we are just now trying to eat, get cleaned up and attempt sleeping. Thank you for all your prayers. Sophie did so good!!!! She only really cried a couple of times and those were all explainable.

1. We tried to prepare the bottle in front of her on the plane.
2. Hour 28 after landing in ATL as we taxied on the runway she cried for about 30seconds.
3. Riding in her first car seat. She had a fit after she realized(I think) that she was in a car seat and then was good to go.

Wow, what a greeting Sophie had at the airport!!! Thanks to all who came and welcomed her home. Salem Students are some of the best students in the world.

We will keep you posted on how things are. Please continue to pray for Sophie and all the girls that now have a family and a home. Pray for the orphans of the world.

Welcome home Lewises! So glad you are home safely! Thank you again for sharing your journey with us. It has been a thrill and a blessing! We will be praying for Sophie's transition and yours. We considered sneaking a peek at the airport but knew that all of this is probably so overwhelming for Sophie! Take care. Happy New Year! Can't wait to meet her! Love, Holli, Bryan, Connor and Jacob
