We went trick or treating at Newark airport and brought our first son home via Pearl Buck and South Korea...he is now as tall as me (5'10" or so)...time flies.

    What a great day it is then! And what a blessing your boys are in your life. I can tell by how you are always posting about them. Them, or him? I forget. Anyway...You're a good dad sir!

    Thanks! Yep there are two...the second one arrived at Philadelphia airport in may of '05. Airports were our delivery room...LOL!

    And TT, if I recall correctly, they both first laid foot on American soil as a lay over in LA.
