Early tomorrow morning, we’ll drive to Dulles International Airport (Washington D.C.) for a 1:25 p.m. takeoff. Fourteen and a half hours later, we are scheduled to land in Incheon International Airport, near Seoul, Korea.
This has been an interesting week with, as I’ve said before, mixed emotions. On the one hand, we leave behind the child who was the reason for our first trip. On the other hand, we go to Korea to bring home the newest member of our family (which, in itself, will be traumatic for our baby girl, at first). Those are pretty intense emotions!
It’s been interesting to watch Ethan this week. I’ve been saying that Ethan probably understands more than we give him credit for. He seems to have a sense that something is about to happen. One of his newest phrases this week is, “Don’t leave me” (e.g., when one of us is leaving the room). We know he’ll be fine, but it won’t be the easiest of weeks (at least, not for us).
Because of the 13 hours time difference, we’re scheduled to land in Korea just before 5:00 p.m. Tuesday (Korea time), but it will feel like 4:00 a.m. to us. We should be ready for bed after we reach the SWS Guest House a couple hours later, then we can begin afresh Wednesday morning.
Well, our next post will probably be written from Korea!
