  • Leaving on a jet plane

    Posted by K on June 6, 2008

    our other daughterHer plane should be taking off just now. Because of the security measures instituted after Sept 11 we weren’t even able to take her to the gate to stay with her until she left. We had to hug and cry at security. I’m gonna miss her so much. She’s going to be on the plane for over 16 hours, we stocked her up with movies and goodies to make the ride a little more bearable. I know she’s excited to be going home. With all that’s happened in Chengdu, she needs to see her family and friends for herself and make sure they are all ok. Her mother and father are even part of the rebuilding. Her mother is an architect and is surveying the buildings to determine which ones need to be rebuilt and her father is a construction engineer and he is rebuilding houses for those who lost everything. He is going to be taking her to show her some of the sites that were worst hit.  When we got back in the car after leaving the airport; I asked my husband are you glad we did it?  He was crying but said he was.  All four of us were so sad to see her go, but wouldn’t have traded the experience of having her live with us for anything.  She was a joy to host.  If you’ve never had an exchange student, you should.  It will change your life in ways you never thought.
