We made it back to Uganda! After 24 hours of travel, including 8 hours in the middle of the night in Dubai airport (can you say MISERABLE?) we made it back. Checked into hotel near the airport for the night…this pic is 10 minutes after we got in the room!
We will be headed back him this morning to our welcoming committee. Pray with us that they will let us have a little rest!
I will admit I cried the entire 24 hours and at one point feared we may get removed from a plane, but once we were here I felt like we were home. Haven’t cried now in 18 hours so that is a good sign. I will definitely miss our family but was so good to have the time with the little ones, their personalities as they grow is something I feel we miss out on the most. I’m afraid we will have some food withdrawal though and there’s not much we can do about that!
Raelee is ready to get home to Smokey and get our puppies back this week. Hopefully get settled back into our life here. It was definitely good to step back and gain some perspective on our life here!
