The Traveling Kreiders

For the past three weeks, Jason and Christine Kreider have been in Vietnam adopting their daughter, Anika. They've been sending pictures and updates, and IM chats and phone calls, but today, they finally made it back to North Carolina.

Tristan, Zoe, and I went to Terminal C to meet the Kreiders when they arrived, and to document the momentous occasion in photos, since the family (including Big Brother Alex and Grandfather Jere) would surely have their hands full.

Here's the first sight of Jason, Christine, and Anika, just past the security checkpoint.

And the kids jump at their chance to hold the baby too.

Jere (Jason's dad) could not be more proud.

Anika, despite being three months old, had never been in a child safety seat. . . until now.

That's it for now as the Kreiders start getting used to a new life as normal. I'm sure we'll be seeing plenty more pictures of all of them over the years. . . especially once Jason gives me my camera back.
