Dear Friends,

I'm so happy and excited to be leaving for Thailand in the morning...to bring my Noom home to America so we can begin our lives together. All the waiting and anxiety is finally over. It is so hard to believe! We'll enjoy 10 days relaxing (plus celebrating my birthday) before we fly back to America TOGETHER on October 3.

The thought of no more sad good byes, tears, and long separations makes us both so very very happy. What a relief :)

Best of luck to everyone still waiting...hang in there. Your day will come!

~David & Noom

Now you've got to find a good market that sells Thai food, a temple if Noom is Buddhist, and buy a pok pok (absolutely essential as my wife eats som tam at least 3-4 times a week). Then the driver's license!
