If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

On Hong Kong, Vomit, and Fancy Parties in Hotel Lobbies

We made it to Hong Kong but not without a little adventure along the way.   Maggie was doing great up until about an hour-and-a-half out when she decided to vomit all over me, herself, and my pillow from car sickness.  I had to think fast as I was observing my sister starting to dry heave herself so I removed Maggie’s clothes, my shirt, and wrapped them all in the pillowcase.  Luckily I had a thin tank top on underneath my shirt, but don’t be fooled, it was just one very small step up from a bra.  

So we passed through customs with Maggie in a diaper and me looking like something they picked up off the street.  It got more interesting when we entered the very fancy airport hotel where there was a dinner party with guests in fancy dresses all in the lobby.  Seriously, people, if it was ever okay to use the term, “white trash,” this is that moment.  We finally checked in, washed our items in the sink, bathed everyone and are now settling in for the night.  

I am terrified for what tomorrow holds.  We have a 4-5 hour flight to Tokyo, a 4-hour layover, a too many hours to count (12-15??) flight to Dallas, a 2-hour layover, and then a flight to Houston.  

Please pray it is well-slept and vomit-free.

It was me who was vomiting in Hong Kong and sick the whole flight. Praying it was just car sickness and nothing you guys will catch. You poor things. Praying for a safe journey home! You are almost there!
