We should still be there....I cannot believe we made it home today. It was like being stuck in a very bad dream, unable to wake yourself up. There are still so many families stranded far from home. My heart goes out to them.
God made a way for us. We were up all night searching for ways to get out of Rome and back to the states. It literally took Aaron hours upon hours to find us a flight.
Truly the Lord made a way for us. Just after our separate flights left the city, the airport in Rome shut down completely.
It was an amazing trip. We were very blessed. But I cannot wait hold our kids.
Can you believe we made the world news! (see link above) I just happened to approach a woman who I noticed was crying on the Spanish Steps. I could tell she was stranded and I was hoping to co-misserate with her. She turned out to be a reporter for msnbc....so Aaron and I shared with her our situation. I hope that she and her sister make it home soon.
For us it turned out to be a happy ending.
