||Mommy. Everyone else was already
in the car, but Aunt Donna had Mommy pose for this picture
as the 'convoy' was leaving to come meet me at the
Philadelphia airport. Pictures for posterity; ya know.
||Aunt Pat, Cousin Nate and Daddy, Uncle MikeK and
Aunt Donna are behind them, and G'Daddy Green and
G'Mommy Green behind them walking to Terminal D where
I was to arrive. Aunt Connie was walking backwards
to take this picture and nearly fell and broke her neck!
Silly Aunt Connie!
||This is my plane's schedule. Flight
Number 1776 ~ quite appropriate for arriving in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, America; don't you think? Mommy and Daddy had
tracked the plane and it's course all through the night before.
The plane had been ahead of schedule since it's take-off
in Seoul. It remained 11 minutes early, which made everyone
even more excited!
||This is the lady from Welcome House
giving last minute instructions to Mommy and Daddy as
G'Mommy Green, Cousin Nate and Aunt Donna look on. Aunt Connie
sort of got in trouble for this picture. Her camera was 'pointed'
down the walkway where the passengers disembark. Because of
heightened security at the airport, due to the September 11, 2001
terrorist attack, guests were not allowed down that way and no type
of camera was allowed to be pointed in that direction.
But Aunt Connie wasn't arrested ~ just sternly told 'Don't do that
again'. SHHHHHH!!! Don't tell anybody!! She did it again without
thinking! But no one noticed that time. Silly Aunt Connie!
||I KNOW!!! You can't see it, but this
is a picture of my plane when it taxied up to the terminal.
You can at least see the D1, if you look closely.
||Mommy and Daddy can hardly contain
themselves as they await my arrival up the walkway.
||Mommy held me as soon as I arrived.
||Mommy, my escort Mr. Kim, Daddy and Me.
Mr. Kim was responsible for me for 21 hours to make sure of my
comfort, safety and safe arrival. You were right!! They do love
me already! Thanks, Mr. Kim!
||This is a picture of me and 'my posse'.
We traveled from Korea together to our new families. I think
Mommy and Daddy and the whole family were very proud of me for
behaving well. I didn't cry ~ I could feel the love.
||Here I am trying to talk to my cousin Nate,
and Aunt Connie is flashing a camera in my face! She said something
about a scrapbook.... Let it go, lady! I'll be here from now on for
||Mommy, Aunt Patty, Aunt Connie, ME and Daddy.
Aunt Patty had Uncle MikeK take this picture. I kinda like Aunt Connie,
even if she is silly. And Aunt Patty too! I don't believe I'll have any
trouble getting either of them to spoil me!
||Cousin Andrew, Aunt Deb, Uncle Bob,
G'Daddy Green, Cousin Nate, Mommy holding me, Uncle MikeG
and G'Mommy Green. They all came out to see me and welcome
me to the family. Couldn't you just hug 'em.
||Aunt Donna and Uncle MikeK came to
welcome me too! Hey, Aunt Donna! You have a pretty smile.
I think if I coo and giggle, she and Uncle MikeK would
spoil me too!! Man! This could be fun!
||G'Mommy is holding me while me and
G'Daddy get acquainted. They are sooooo cool! I bet I
won't have to do too much performing to get them to spoil
me absolutely rotten....In fact, I know!
