Our journey to America was an arduous one because James was only 1 year old, we moved through big airports in Hong Kong, San Francisco and Houston, and David and Lam took turn falling sick along the way. After the uncomfortable ride on an enormous crowded airplane from Vietnam to SF, we were happy to “land” on our super-fluffy bedding in the Sofitel in Silicon Valley where David slept and sweated for 2 days.
We were moving our life across the world again and this year 2013 has seen us face up to enormous issues, logistical and legal. With the gracious help of U.S. Consular Officer Joshua Chan and Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell’s Office, we overcame US immigration hold-up in record time so we could be in Kentucky for Jacob’s school enrollment. We are forever grateful to those individuals who have helped and prayed for us, especially those we have not met in person. We truly feel lucky and wish to return their favors somehow.
Below are pictures of us in HK airport, SF hotel, Jacob’s new school and our new home in Lexington, KY, USA. We are thankful to have arrived in 4 intact pieces. With two trips across the world, one round-trip, within 4 months, we don’t want to see an airplane on the ground again for a long time.
