Made it!


Made it!
Originally uploaded by Dennis&Terri.
Eleanor tries out her new swing one day after the long and exhausting trip home to Sacramento from Hong Kong. The trek home (train from Guangzhou to Hong Kong, then flights from Hong Kong to Tokyo, Tokyo to Portland and Portland to Sacramento) seemed endless at times, but Eleanor traveled well and seemed to create a sensation wherever she went. (At the gate in Portland, eight people surrounded her at one point while she charmed them all. It's like traveling with a rock star, only not as much care and feeding.) The three of us were truly spent when we finally straggled in the door in Sacramento, but a good night's sleep and long midday nap later, all were recovering well. Eleanor even entertained a visitor on Sunday: Her Aunt Dorothy, who pronounced her "fabulous." Who are we to argue? ... We are thankful to be home, and are gratified by the wonderful responses we've received from all over the world about the blog (as our great friend Clint Williams likes to say, this internet thing may catch on). It's been an amazing journey and a life-changing experience to find and meet Eleanor and bring her home. We'll post some reflections in the coming days, but many thanks to all for your interest and support. We could feel you rooting for us, and it meant the world.
