So, here we are, waiting at the Toronto Airport. Excited does not begin to describe the emotions of the kids! As far as the adults go... definite excitement, joy and anticipation, joined by a decent bit of apprehension wondering how things will flow over the next few weeks. It's good to know that God is in control.
It all seems so surreal. After a journey of approximately 1 1/2 years, we are but an hour away from boarding the plane for our 14 hour flight to Shanghai. You wait and wait and the process seems so long, but the final week has been much of a blur. Paperwork, packing, finishing off a few things, more paperwork and packing, tidying and preparing, with more paperwork and packing!
Much thanks to Mom for feeding us supper last night and breakfast this morning so we could leave our house in tidiness awaiting our return!
We are surprised at how empty this very beautiful Terminal 1 at Pearson International Airport (Awarded Most Improved Airport in the World, no less!) is. By what we've been told, the crowds in China will be much different! Looking forward to it.
