Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri


Getting Ready

I got my flights all take care of on Friday.  I'll be flying out of JFK on Cathay Pacific.  I've heard only good things about that airline, and I checked them out on-line.  They look very nice. They have a great site online and fun to look around on the airplane.  Go here.  Jack liked to play with the flight simulator on this site.   I'll miss my familiar United path through Chicago.  I've been through there 3 times with customs and immigration, but am excited to go a different route this time.  Ivy and I will be flying back home on Cathay through San Francisco.  We have a long layover and I am hoping we can head out to lunch near the water.  My travel agent recommended Fisherman's Wharf area.

Today I booked reservations at the Victory.  I had expected to stay at the Holiday Inn, but the Victory seemed much easier with its location and familiarity.  Since Mike will not be with me, I want to make this as easy as possible on myself.  We will be within walking distance to the Medical Exam building.  Since Ivy is 7 years old, we'll have to have a TB test for her, then have to go back to have it checked.  So, the Victory seemed the most logical place to stay.  Plus, it is nice that their water is filtered and I won't have to brush my teeth with bottled water for 2 weeks.  That was what got me sick in 2007 when we adopted Joy.

It is so strange to believe that in a week, Ivy will be with me....face to face.

We flew Cathay coming back. They are great. When Talicee was upset, they helped calm her down. You are in great hands. Enjoy your trip.

SO glad you'll be at the Victory..can't wait to meet you and precious little Ivy!! We are flying home through San Fransisco on February 13th with a LONG layover...what day are you coming home??


Praying for a deep peace beyond all understanding for both you and Ivy Xue. It's finally time!!!


Cheri that is wonderful, wishing you a safe journey and much happiness!


Congrats! Can't wait to follow your journey! I am glad you posted about flying Cathay...I have now checked out their website. What was your main reason for choosing them? Is it more cost effective?
Thanks!!! Safe travels.
