Welcome to India

We have arrived safely in India tonight. It is early Saturday morning here, like 2 AM. We just skyped with both our parents to tell them we arrived here with no problem. We also got to talk to James, Jackie, and most importantly, Stevie. There is a webcam at my parents, so we were able to actually see him waking up from his nap with Aunt Jackie. We didn't get to talk to my mom yet because she was still working, but we are calling back around 8pm tonight.

The plane ride felt never ending. It was 14 hours in total and we saw a sunset, a sunrise, and then another sunset. We lost a complete day on the plane. It was really weird to look at our watches (still on EST) and see it was the middle of the night and then look out the window and see the sun shining brightly. How amazing!

We have read all the comments and appreciate them, keep them coming, as we love the support and prayers. We are going to the clinic to meet the doctors and we are really excited. We also wanted to say a big thanks to Amit!! He made our reservations flawlessly. I highly, highly recommend you contact him if you are ever coming this way... Hey you never know, we never thought we'd be in Mumbai ;)

We will write more tomorrow, we are going to try to get to bed now. Good night!
