Leaving on a Jet Plane

Dear Jack,
We will soon be on our way to pick you up! Tomorrow we leave on an airplane and fly as fast as we can all the way across the world to come and get you. We were not sure yesterday if we would make it. Our car even got stuck leaving the driveway. But the plows came and planes started to land today so we are pretty sure we are on our way. Here are some picutre of the snow at our house the night before we got on the airplane.
Here is a pictures out our back door.
Here is a picture of our swing set, and how the snow comes all the way to the top of the 4 foot fence.

We are busy packing and getting ready. We taught your grandma's all they need to know to take care of your brother and sister while we come to get you. They will miss us while we are gone and we will miss them but we are so excited to meet you! Here is a picture of your room the night before we got on the airplane. We are using your room to pack our bags in. Soon the room will be filled with Jack and his toys and there won't be room for suitcases anymore.

There are other babies waiting to come home to their forever families. Some of those babies are not as healthy as you so we are bringing them some presents. Rice cereal that the really small babies need (premies) and cans of special formula for a little baby that can not have any other kind. We are bringing some bottles of baby lotion as well. They don't have these things in Korea so we wanted to bring them with us as a present for all the babies waiting to go to their forever families like you. Here is a picture of the suitcase with the presents for the babies who are waiting like you to come home to their families.

We can't wait to meet you Jack and bring you home to be in your family forever! We will see you soon!
Love Mom.
