Saying goodbye to Ukraine....next stop Paris
Mia thought the plane was just a big car.
She was SO good on both flights. The first flight from Kiev to Paris was 4 hours. On takeoff she said "weeeee"
She entertained herself with magazines
a few books and her baby doll
She liked to show her baby what was out the window
and read the book to her doll too
she loved hiding under her blanket with her doll and playing
She thought it was great that she could be in this big "car" AND have a meal brought to her! She of course used her best manners eating...as usual! People around us could not stop watching her!
she slept through the landing into Paris
As you know, when we got to Paris our plans changed...and we stayed at the airport for our 12 hour layover
we are so happy to be staying at the airport...haha
she crashed before the airport delivered the little foam mattresses and blankets
At 11 the next morning we boarded our last flight home....a 10 hour flight
This little one did AMAZING! She just sat in her seat and colored and entertained herself! She took 2 naps and hardly made a peep. Everyone around us was amazed at how well she behaved and when they found out we had just adopted her and had only had her with us for a week, they were shocked. They said she seemed so comfortable they thought she had been ours forever.
I was emotional as we landed! Kris and I looked at each other and said "we did it!" What a wonderful journey we had, which made it all the more emotional to be safely in America and about to see our family and friends again! It makes you super grateful for all that we have here! After a LONG trip, we finally arrived HOME to a WONDERFUL welcome of family and friends!!!!
