Tom and Gabriel got all packed to go this morning, and drove to MSP airport at 12:30.
Then they sat and sat and sat. The plane was to fly to Chicago at 5 p.m. but bad weather prohibited it. Eventually they guessed at leaving around 7:15 p.m. They needed to catch the Munich flight by 8:50 p.m. in Chicago.
We all prayed here! And then I quickly e-mailed adoption friends to see what the options were if the flight was missed. We know so little about traveling by plane! The information was helpful- they would get re-booked. No new tickets to buy! (phew!) So we waited.
At 8:40 Tom called. They were on the Munich plane! Praise the Lord! They just made it!! Now we aren't sure if their luggage made it! But the most important thing was them to be on that plane! :o)
